A very cleverly designed, produced and skilfully crafted poems Dean. Written in slight variation of meter. With a most imaginative parody of Halloween v other celebrations. Smoothly composed in aabb rhyming, good scribing, well done, blessings, Roy
Ooh, looks like Casper the friendly ghost. Why couldn't you center your writing under the illustration? Wow! You really had your thinking cap on when you wrote this - so clever bringing all the celebrated holidays together. Christmas has died in a plastic kind of way. Easter, well its all about chocolate not Christ. We don't celebrate Halloween, it is your favourite I know. Keep on haunting my friend. XXK.
Gotta admit, Halloween isn't my favorite holiday as some not so good things happened in our neighborhood when the kids were small. Razor blade in apple, etc. So stopped.
BUT...gotta admit it was a great easy flowing poem. The personification of all the holidays was definitely fun. Know you had fun with this one. Cute videos too.
Dean, this is a happy variation on the usual Halloween fare - I love your idea of all the annual holidays debating their own merits and then being swept away by Halloween at Stephen King's command. I like the appropriate costumes too. The logic may not stand too close an examination - why would King have all the other holidays cornered? - but I'll grant you poetic licence on that one.
Lots of fun, some inventive writing and your usual gorgeous presentation must make this a strong contender.
This is another well put together masterpiece of yours. I do not celebrate Halloween but I did want to give the poem the reading it deserved. I could not resist rating it what it deserved also. It is the work, the artful efforts that you put into each poem that I am rating. Your work is extraordinary, ALWAYS!
Well, I just can't deny it. This is as clever as hell. LOL
I cracked up at Thanksgiving nodding off after all the Tryptophan from the over indulgence in turkey. HAAAHAHA!
Great depictions of each holiday, spot on I felt. Your rhythm and rhyme have become second nature now and you just spin the stories smooth as glass. I remember when you used to say you weren't a poet. NOW you have me thinking that. LOL mike
