Halloween - Poem by Jerrye Cargill Blevins

-"The black silk cat, and an old straw broom
Share the same hearth, in the fireplace room-"
Said the old silk cat, to the old straw broom
"A Halloween party we'll host quite soon"
"We'll see witches and ghosts, Jack-o-lanterns
large and small - apples for bobbing, black
spiders on the wall!" "While the flaming fire dances merrily,
surprising costumes we shall see"-
-"We'll have treats for children, fortunes will be told,
Soon the night will be growing old"-
"I've seen many parties in this old room,
Said the old black hat to the old straw broom
"the fire it huffed and quietly
puffed and the black cat
winked at the broom, as they
snuggled together in the
fire place room-
