It's Halloween Friday
by Prudence
 The Witch

by Jack Prelutsky

She comes by night, in fearsome flight,
In garments black as pitch,
the queen of doom upon her broom,
the wild and wicked witch,

a crackling crone with brittle bones
and dessicated limbs,
two evil eyes with warts and sties
and bags about the rims,

a dangling nose, ten twisted toes
and fold of shriveled skin,
cracked and chipped and crackled lips
that frame a toothless grin.

She hurtles by, she sweeps the sky
and hurls a piercing screech.
As she swoops past, a spell is cast
on all her curses reach.

Take care to hide when the wild witch rides
to shriek her evil spell.
What she may do with a word or two
is much too grim to tell.
Wishing you a fun and safe Halloween.


Hope to see you tomorrow at
 THIRD ANNUAL online craft show.


  1. Hi Prudence don't tell me you have turned into a skeleton. You look like you need a good feed. I am a bit scared tonight. We had children knocking on our door with scary faces and long fingernails. I hid behind Granny. She gave them lollies to go away.

  2. Happy Halloween from my 'kids' to yours! HAVE FUN! Sweet hugs, Diane and dollies and bears
