Old Clara is covered in the gray fogs of rain
And brown storm water is gurgling in every roadside drain
And the sun behind gray clouds is hidden away
And cattle in farm sheds are bellowing for silage or hay

But it remained fine at the weekend for Halloween. Little children dressed in all sorts of scary outfits went from house to house singing and dancing to earn the goody bags, before rushing off to the next place. Some places sent up sparking fireworks as the little ones gazed skywords in awe of it all.
