The Creatures of the Night
A little monster trots by my side,
And little fairies run and hide.
It’s one big race: Who will get there first?
The witches cackle. We are all cursed.
The headless horseman gallops ahead.
The competition of the dead
Werewolves, ghosts, and of course; vampires
Lights dance in their hands like tiny fires.
They dash to the portal, where they’ll be sustained.
It doesn’t matter that some are chained.
The Grim Reaper glares,
As we run to the lair.
Anne Boleyn holds her head up high.
And winged demons fly through the sky.

The monster at my side tugs on my shirt.
“I have to go potty!”
Gotta love Halloween.


The author's comments:
The whole idea of this poem is a teenage girl is taking her brother trick-or-treating. She is describing the scene before her. She notices that all the kids seem to be racing from one door to the next.

Wow, very clever how you used all the discriptive halloween charector to discride how a young child has to," go potty." I think you picked a great picture to go along with your poem. Your poem is also very well set up. I quite enjoy how you talk about the cackleing witch and headless horseman galloping ahead
