Your Halloween poem is very entertaining, Dean. I was wondering if you had forgotten that Stephen King was supposed to be involved, but then he made a late entrance and took charge of the poem - and restored Halloween's esteem by making all the holidays you wrote about Halloween fans.

One question lingers - How did 'Sweetest Day' get into this story, and who or what is she, he, or it??

    Sweetest Day is observed the 3rd Saturday in the month of October. Sweetest Day observance originated in Cleveland in 1922. Herbert Birch Kingston, a philanthropist and candy company employee wanted to bring happiness into the lives of orphans, shut-ins and others who were forgotten.
    Thanks for reading.

    I guess what happens in Cleveland stays in Cleveland. or did so in Mr. Kiingston's time. If word of his annual Day ever spread anywhere within a hundred miles of these parts, especially if his beneficence didn't accompany it, the woman I must not have, would have embraced it eagerly, and Octobers would since be seeming far too close to her mandatory-to-observe birthday month of September.

    Oh, is Stephen King going to be altering any more of our holidays, Dean?

reply by the author on 02-Oct-2017
    Too late here. All the ladies already know about Sweetest Day all too well.
    As far as Stephen altering our holidays I dunno; I'll have to ask him.

Very nice poem and fun. Quite a neat trick_getting all those special days into the same piece.
What is, "Sweetest Day"?
"Thanksgiving belched then soon started to snore." How typical."
Valentine's day and chocolate_perfect.

Ah, Dean;
this is simply amazing! You created a wonderful poem full of Halloween fun, and even had Stephen King create a way for the holidays to participate. I absolutely loved it.

From the presentation to the creativity, you definitely deserve the EXCEPTIONAL rating,

~patty~

"A Haloween with Steven King", is an extremely well-written and deftly descriptive piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me this is a definite six!

The merchants have butted the holidays end to end. Easter turkeys and Halloween eggs are imminent. Excellent poem, Dean. Should come on strong in a Halloween poem contest.

Favorite lines:
Thanksgiving belched then soon started to snore.
Halloween knew she was being ignored.
"ALL of us matter," she shouted in anger.
Stephen King watched from his Mansion in Bangor.

Hello Dean, Very good. Very sweet. A lot of work went into this poem. Your poem made me smile, and my two-year old grandson, who cannot read, loved seeing your graphics as he sat upon my knee.

I especially liked:

"I'm not so bad," poor Halloween pouted.
"You've got to be kidding!" Sweetest Day shouted.
"Old graveyards and ghouls--gaunt ghosts are your thing.
You think it's fun, all that terror you bring?"

(Of the above, I can relate -- not a big fan of Halloween,
except for the cute stuff like your poem.)

Silky rhyming. A pleasure to read. As this is a contest entry, I wish you good luck. LateBloomer

I enjoyed reading your poem "Halloween with Stephen King". You rhymed it well with plenty of amusement and imagination, that children would love. Surprisingly I was married on Halloween - and still married many years later.
All the best.
Marybell1.

Love it!! I love all the holidays, even Groundhog Day, ha ha. But Halloween is special, she gets all the goodies, and gets to be Pennywise. He has a new book out by the way, set in Appalachia...can't remember the name. We only get 7 or 8 trick or treaters... but I buy the same amount of candy and make little bags. Darn, it...I can't write spooky, wish I'd thought of this!! Hope you win! Blessings....

A poem about an author that I have always admired and it is obvious by reading your poem that you do as well. A very good Halloween poem for the upcoming season.
