Halloween. . .

 When little witches and bunnies get ready for Halloween
A sight the like you've never seen.
The washing comes out, rub and scrub and dub a dub dub,
The moths take flight, what a hub bub.
Black cats howl and robin's scowl,
Watchout!...something spooky, is on the prowl,
Oh, it's only Mr Owl.

The cauldron is polished and ready to bubble,
The broom, the broom is all of a muddle.
Pumpkins, bats and little black hats, dance.
Twirling and swirling around and around, to the sound of a witches cackle.
The Moon is shining bright and white and full and stoic
Everyone is ready for a night of trick or treating, sweets and magic.


A little Fun and Nonsense from my Sketchbook... I know I'm no poet but it's a start... :D
I'm entering into this fun competition... Susanna Hill's Halloween Contest..
