OCTOBER FOR KIDS (haiku and tanka)

Two Ps in PumPkin
Two BIG Os in OctOber
and    apples galore

One October night
Along about All Saint's Day
I heard Satan laugh
T'was in a rural graveyard.......
Or.....was it the old Bijou?

October pig roast
Girls squeal and the fire pit POPS!
Boys have a leaf fight
While Mrs. and I keep warm
After dark the ghosts will come

October hayrack
A friendly kiss in the straw
Horses    country road

Autumn mystery
GIANT PUMPKINS come to life
They live at our house

The pool covered o'er
No swimming in October
Beneath the canvas
Crawls the Amityville horror
Or so big brother tells me
