Poetry: “Easter tradition”

Portraying a Swedish Easter tradition, and probably why Trick or Treating as it is in America never really took off properly here, cause we already have an equivalent around Easter time.


Easter tradition

A small kindly witch
Arrived at my door
She asked me for candy
With her face all made up

Cheeks red and rosy
With freckles so black
Dressed as an old lady
Though still called a “witch”

She offers me cards
In exchange for her treats
All covered in sparkles
And crayon drawings

Then with a laugh
She went on her way
Perhaps she’ll return
Another year hence
