Come inside. Sit a spell. Tell me the news.
A quiet, friendly couple gestures you to the door. Come out of the nippy morning air. I’ll put the coffee pot on. Or stop for an afternoon chat with sunshine warming us through the window.
And then we’ll have special guests one evening. Shorter folks, for the most part. Many with watchful adults in the background. Reach up to ring the bell. Hold out the bag or plastic pumpkin and giggle.
Trick or Treat????
