Halloween Streets
A haunted night of ghouls and beasts
When vampires search for bloody feasts
There are witches casting evil spells
Stirring cauldrons spewing nasty smells
Black cats howl out into the night
At evil pumpkins glowing bright
Skeletons hanging down from the trees
Play eerie music on the breeze
Banshees scream above the streets
Where children dare to beg for treats
Of candy apples and popcorn balls
As ghosts fly out from haunted walls
A mummy limps in moldy rags
A detached leg behind him drags
Zombies hearing unknown voice
Walk in a daze without a choice
Goblins hide in trunks of trees
Undetected, grabbing kids with ease
To steal their sacks of candy treats
Then chase them back to haunted streets
Werewolves awake in full moon light
Rip up the towns throughout the night
Bats with glowing red-gold eyes
Drop down as vampires from the skies
Children on the streets beware
And travel on this night with care
There are evil spirits that fill the air
Who will steal your souls without a care

Ew, great poem for children to take heed of while their out trick-or-treating on Halloween night! There are so many vindictive people out there who don't mind doing a child harm! I love it! Thanks for sharing!

I am sorry I missed this one sis. This is really a good poem, and some of those evil spirits are not necessarily what you said here but are people who like to harm children. This is a cute poem with a very real message. Thank you for sharing it.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister, Barbie.

You caught the season perfectly.

Your work always sings perfectly. Your visions are with clarity, each time. One only has to see you've written to know they are in for a wonderful treat. So while the kids enjoyed the candy treats of Halloween, us adults were in for a treat of our own when we visited your den.
Thanks again.

Not me / Nope / They ain't gonna get me! / I'm hunkered down / Lights out / Answering no doorbells and loud and frightening knocks / I am not here . . . Whew! / Will this night never end?
