And now for a completely self-indulgent post…
The Halloween Queen wears a special crown
As she traipses gaily through the town.
Bats swoop down to take a peek
At her chapeau, so sweet and chic.
Its candles glow with sparkly fire
As pumpkins seethe with lit desire.
Through envious eyes, the witches stare.
Their pointy hats cannot compare.
The Queen is out for trick or treat
And something else that’s just as neat.
She sports the crown one day per year
Gathering wishes and good cheer.
Ghosts beware. Ghouls make way.
Today’s the Halloween Queen’s birthday!
Yes, it really is my birthday. At age 6 my costume was a Halloween Birthday Girl. My cake-hat candles were not actually lit, although that would have been even more fun!
Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie Contest: Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words witch, bat, and “trick-or-treat.” Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between. Susanna’s challenges always garner marvelous entries, so I encourage you to pop over and read them all! (Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people.)
