Halloween Night - Poem by Della Perry
I went for a long walk with my dog
We saw across the street a green frog
He waved and as he started to retreat
We noticed he had fluffy feet.
We carried on walking down the road
When we spied a big, fat toad
He smiled at us and said Hi
We noticed he had a bulging eye.
We thought it funny but carried on
We saw a cat with a tall hat on?
He hissed at us as we walked by
On his nose was a bluebottle fly.
Things were strange, we didn't have a clue
Then over our head a broomstick flew
On it a witch yelled, 'Trick or Treat,
You standing down there in the street.'
We carried on faster than ever
Someone thought they were being clever
Trying to scare us out our wits
With cloaks and masks and scary bits.
We would not be fooled we knew that
But then we saw a flying bat
We looked up at the bright moon
I was so scared I almost swooned.
The dog was barking and howling away
I wished that I had stopped in that day
The dog stopped for a sniff at the post
That's when I spied the horrible ghost.
I screamed, I shouted, I was so terrified
Ghosts did exist, my mother had lied
Then off their heads kids pulled off their masks
They had excelled in their scary task.
'Trick or Treat, Halloween night
We are here to give you a fright
We will scare and we will dare
Terrify you cause we don't care! '
Just then the dog looked up at the moon
Oh, no I heard him howl a tune
Those kids shouldn't have come out that night
For Wolfie hadn't eaten yet, not a bite!
HOWL! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
