Moonlight Flight

An antique postcard that features the fantasy of a witch in flight.

The witch and trees are vividly silhouetted against the bright yellow full moon.

If you look closely, spider webs can be seen in the tree tops.

Even though it is nighttime,
the deep blue of the sky is evident
as well as the green field beneath the witch’s flight path.
The gold, orange and black block border
adds an additional level of interest to this antique postcard.

Postcard from my personal collection

Marked Whitney Made, Worcester, Massachusetts, Made in U.S.A.

Although this postcard does not bear a stamp or postmark,
it is addressed to Mrs. Sims
and includes a simple greeting penned on the back:
Watch out!!!

By Harry Behn

Tonight is the night
When dead leaves fly
Like witches on switches
Across the sky,
When elf and sprite
Flit through the night
On a moony sheen.

Tonight is the night
When leaves make a sound
Like a gnome in his home
Under the ground,
When spooks and trolls
Creep out of holes
Mossy and green.

Tonight is the night
When pumpkins stare
Through sheaves and leaves
When ghouls and ghost
And goblin host
Dance round their queen.
It's Halloween.
