The Ex-Halloweener's New Disguise

It’s Halloween. . . Come rain or sleet, I’m sure to hear small goblin feet come clamoring up each porch stair that leads them to my door, and there they’ll hold up bags, call, “Trick or Treat!” I used to find this night so sweet. But what a nuisance now to greet those kids and have to leave my lair! It’s Halloween. When young, I’d stay out, wild and fleet And smartly dressed, skip down each street. But now, since I can hardly wear cute little costumes. . . . it’s a BEAR those kids who climb my steps will meet! It’s Halloween! By Andrea Dietrich - 9/22/2012 For The Ultimate Halloween Contest Poetry Contest of Russell Sivey

    Sweet and a very intelligent write Andrea. We don't have Halloween here in India but this sure sounds a lot of fun, wish I could get such costumes for my kids, they sure would love it! You are sure to do well in this contest, dear. So honored that you browse through my poems to read an unread one.
