Here Be Halloween
Here be witches and goblins, ghosts and superheroes.
Arriving on doorsteps expecting
Loads of candy, armfuls of it in fact.
Lollipops, Snickers, and Reese's
Wee little spooks out for adventure
Everyone handing out lots of sugar
Even apples become candied, caramel coated.
No one need be afraid on Halloween night.
Harry Potter’s First Halloween
By Becca Resner
Harry Potter sat at his first Hogwarts feast:
All the meat pies and tasty treats
Lured the students’ hungry stares
Leaving a delicious tension in the air.
Over everyone’s heads hung grinning Jack-O-Lanterns
While sounds of laughter and clinking dishes erupted.
Even the house ghosts joined in, in their fashion.
Everyone, full, fell into murmurs, butNever did anyone expect a troll!
