WOW is the first word that came to mind as I finished reading your witchy poem. Fantastic job writing your Halloween poem. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
God Bless,

    Hi Darlene. Thank you for reading my witchy poem. I've written several for this Halloween which has been great fun. I'm putting them all into a FanStory book entitled, "Bewitching Halloween." A few more to go before the holiday. Marilyn

A very well-written poem about a very neat witch that cleans her house and get rid of all the cobwebs to wait in her rocking chair to fly away when the death bells knell.

Hi Marilyn,

I love reading Halloween poems, and this one is no exception. Imaginative and creative, your poem paints a vivid picture of this witch. I'm glad your author notes gave an explanation for "familiars" as I was actually thinking it was 'familiar, comforting things' in her home. I liked it that way too! :)

The artwork is great, and a perfect pairing for your Halloween write. Well written with excellent imagery created for your reader. My favourite part is "mumbling spells". :)

Connie

    Hi Connie. These Halloween poems have been so much fun and interesting for me. A few more to go and I'll be done with them. May add to it next year. Thank you for your fine review and comments. Hugs, Marilyn

    Hi Jax. Thank you for your review of my witchy poem. A few more to go and then Halloween will be over. BooHoo!
    Regarding your other poem, I saw you had another one there, but I had a dentist apt and haven't had a chance to read it yet. Marilyn

reply by Jacqueline M Franklin on 24-Oct-2016
    Ugh ,,, that six-month checkup with the dentist comes around far too quickly. (*<*) No fun.

A very well written Halloween poem. Your artwork completed the piece well. Your well-chosen words flowed easily line to line combining and forming the message of the poem for the reader.

I was going to look 'familiars' up, as this is the third time I read it, it doesn't mean the same in Spanish! Now I know what it means I can appreciate the poems, LOL. I loved yours, Marilyn, the witch time forgot, that is totally different. You should have put it in the contest--unless you already have one in it. Well done, my friend. xsx Sandra

I almost felt sorry for your old witch living in her miserable cottage till I got to the last line. Why does she fly away when our death bell tolls? To do what? Scary!
Thanks for sharing.

Ooo... scary ending. Wasn't expecting that. I thought the witch was dead. I guess they don't die. Good poem. I like the ababab rhyme with six lines instead of four. Nice to see some variation. :)

    Hi Judy. Halloween is nearly here. I've surprised myself with this batch of poems for the season. However, it's been great fun. A few more to go. God willing, I'll pick it up again next year. This is #8 in the batch. There are about 3 more to go. Thank you so much for your review and support. Marilyn

    Looking forward to them!! Then maybe some turkey, or pilgrimy poems!!!!
