Poetry Friday

October 24th, 2008

Nothing says fall more than Halloween. In my town, people from the more rural sections descend upon my neighborhood in wild costumes. Some of my neighbors really go all out with haunted houses and decorations. I love taking the kids trick or treating out in the crowded streets. Here’s a poem by Kenn Nesbitt called “Halloween Party.” I could see myself in this situation!

Halloween Party
By Kenn Nesbitt

We’re having a Halloween party at school.
I’m dressed up like Dracula. Man, I look cool!

    Are you lucky enough to live in a place where trick-or-treat is always on October 31 instead of some arbitrary “safer” day picked by the city? It’d be easy to get mixed up if you grew up with “Halloween” on random days!
