Halloween Poem


October 7, 2008 by WITS Houston

Black Cat

The witches screech
the pumpkins gloom
the black cat sleeks
silently through the dark
the ghosts glow in the night
the zombies stomp around
the black cat sleeks silently
through the dark

the werewolves growl
the goblins moan
the black cat sleeks silently
through the dark

    Great poems, I just found you on the web and it’s great that you support students to write poetry. I am writing on poetry4kids on my blog. You can read and listen to audio recordings. Just now it is Halloween time and I have riddles, limericks and scary stories for kids. I am a student(11). I will link to your blog on my blogroll, please link back 🙂

    Happy Halloween,
