Best Daver Austin Poems

At the door
Little Boy Blue
Kissed our pumpkin
Mistress Mary too

Shutters rattle
Unearthly howls
Ghastly sounds
From Satan’s jowls

Tattered scarecrow
In the corn
Comes to life
The dead reborn

Halloween pumpkin
Big surprise
Runny nose
And bloodshot eyes

Flee my children
Here they come
Graveyard creatures
On the run

In the kitchen
Gary’s wife
Chased by a spook
With a carving knife

Diddle, diddle pumpkin
Old Mrs. Rich
Rides on a broomstick
She’s a witch!

    If Mother Goose was a witch, these would be her favorite rhymes! Ghastly Goose's Nursery Rhymes for ghost, ghouls and monsters!

    Yikes, this would give the kids nightmares, Daver! Trick or treaters, beware! I used to love the kids coming to the door, but now we are the only ones on this street (except for two others), that have their lights on. The town hall makes a Halloween party for the children, buggers!:) Last two years it had snowed, I'll bet "Mrs. Rich"s broomstick is now a shovel.:( Keep well, Love, Mikki

    It's a scary time of year, no place to hide. Hope I can make it through that night when it comes. You did a great job building the suspense and creepy goings on Dave but then it's all part of your wild imagination!! :) Love,Eliz

    This is a wonderful, simply gorgeous write! I am a huge fan of Halloween, and this poem, like your first one, exudes some really great characteristic of Halloween! My favorite stanza has to be the one that goes, "Halloween pumpkin, Big surprise, Runny nose, And bloodshot eyes" That stanza is incredible my friend! I have to say that they all are really fabulous, what awesome work you have done here! Are you into the Halloween mood now? I know I am! What a fantastic piece, Great Work!!
