My Favorite Things--Halloween Edition, now with Frazetta art

Cobwebs in corners and witches on broomsticks
Bright jack-o-lanterns and ghosts who play card tricks
Decorative villagers held up with string
These are a few of my favorite things

Dun colored zombies and spiders that scurry
Plump trick-or-treaters gobbled up in a hurry
Black bats that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Creatures and monsters of all shapes and sizes
Werewolves that howl at the moon as it rises
Mummies that lurch as they lose their wrappings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the day breaks
When the bird sings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

I wrote that a while ago, when my son Jacob found a plastic jack-o'-lantern behind a shelf and yelled, "Oh, that's my favorite thing!" I guess in an ideal world I'd find somebody to draw some pen and ink monsters to go with it and make a calligraphy version to hang up on the wall. Maybe some day.

I'm not quite satisfied with some of the lines, but I think it works overall. The Frazetta art is just there cause it's spectacular.
