The Witches of the Woods

There are witches who live in the woods

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! My young nephews love Halloween and all that it entails and so, having written this scary little rhyme for them, and since it’s not too far off, I decided I’d share it here with you.

The Witches of the Woods

There are witches who live out in the woods
And on Halloween night they ascend
They head skyward on  their broomsticks
Causing mischief without end

They come out hunting for their food source
A sweet and tasty treat
For them, there’s just a single taste
All others can not beat

It’s children witches hunt for
But only on this  night
They capture those who’re out too late
And they revel in causing  fright

The wisest children aren’t out too late
They’re  home, tucked up for the night
So that when the witches pass their house
They’ll already be sleeping tight

Then in the morning, they sigh relieved
The coast is finally clear
But they know the witches will return
To stock their larders up next year

As always, thank you so much for reading my words, it really means a lot!

Until next time
