children's poem
"Halloween Guests" by Barb Hensongispsaca
One tiny, feathered Indian
came knocking at my door
requesting candy or he'd dance
across my kitchen floor.

Two scary witches dressed in black
were next to visit me.
They wanted candy then they would
go 'way and let me be.

Three fuzzy little bunnies came
with noses twitching fast,
but carrots were not what they'd need,
to make their taste buds last.

Four mummies from the pyramids
all wrapped in dusty white,
said candy drew them to my door
along with my porch light.

Five dainty fairies dressed in pink
while spreading fairy dust
said candy was their favorite choice
and truly was a must.

Six vampires from their caskets deep
came floating 'cross the lawn,
they needed candy right away
before the break of dawn.

Then seven ghosts flew to my door,
their chains were clinging loud.
They moaned out 'trick or treat' or else
they would return ... they vowed.

Eight pirates with birds on their arms,
a patch o'er one blue eye,
yelled 'candy or you'll walk the plank'
'twas quite a scary cry.

Nine angels with their wings of gold,
came singing next in line.
Their candles were a flashlight's glow
that really made them shine.

Ten ghouls came last to beg for treats,
the scariest of all.
I thought I'd better treat them good
or 'tricks' they might recall.

I love to see the differences
each Halloween night brings
with feathers, fur and shrouds of white
and other well thought things.

The book continues with He Took This Lump. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
