I have a little trick….. no sorry, it’s a treat for you all.
A very talented gentleman asked if he could write some Halloween poems for you all for your cards and boy are they good.
I’m going to post one after each of my cards over the next few days, here is the first
Once upon a time, there was an old witch,
Her magical broom had a cruel switch.
All the kids knew, haunted was her house,
Those that entered, never returned, not even a mouse.
One foggy night, Jill met Thea and Fred,
These very curious kids, snuck out of bed.
They knew the witch lived, up on that hill,
A quick glance of her house, gave them the chill.
They slowly approached, with plenty of fright,
Saw owls and bats, above them in flight.
In her front yard, they saw a few stones,
Next to these stones, scattered were bones.
Fred trembled in fear, gently he knocked,
The door opened itself, they were all shocked.
She smiled and laughed, the children she greeted,
Asked if they’re hungry, they were told to be seated.
She laughed once again, said her night is now rich,
Picked up her broom and pressed the cruel switch.
What happened next was much more than foul,
Turned Thea and Jill into bats, and Fred became an owl.
