Little Monsters - Poem by Darlene Walsh

When dusk has settled on Halloween night
Look to the sky for a frightful sight
Look carefully high in the sky
Will you see witches flying by

Or in the darkness under a tree
Close your eyes, what will you see
Little monsters are hiding there
So be careful that you don't stare

Goblins and ghouls and princesses too
Creatures dressed in black, red and blue
Invading your home, ringing your bell
Are they going to cast an evil spell

Demons and fairies and a vampire duet
Looking for treats, sweet and chocolate
So be prepared when they come to greet
With little faces that say trick-or-treat

    so sweet! especially the 'chocolate' part.

    darla, it's been so long since i've heard from you that i had to ponder what your last name is/was.

    hopefully 'no news is good news'! !

    I don't celebrate Halloween and don't believe that the stories about it are true. However, this poem is a rare product of artistic skill. Keep it up gal...10/10 (Report) Reply
