Poem: Putting Away Halloween (Once again!)

Again the time is near to put away my Halloween guys and gals-
witches and monsters-Pumpkins and cats...
and all the rest!
This is a silly little poem I wrote
and posted here in 2006

...I thought some of you might have missed it!
Wouldn't want that - NO WAY! LOL!

(Please note the label on this post is ~'June being silly!')


Putting Away Halloween - 2006

I’ll put you all away,
my witches and my monsters, dear,
hidden there in tissue, inside boxes;
also taped!

Jack-O-Lanterns‘ smiles and frowns –
will vanish for another year…
tied up tight in Wal-Mart bags I saved...
no way will you escape!

One more time you’ve done me proud...
Wolf Man, Frank and all the rest.
I’ve learned to shiver less,
the longer that I’ve known you.

I’ve decided that those scary sounds,
and the way you tend to dress
is all for show! Please tell me...
is this really true?

Next time we meet I know,
from having done this through the years,
you’ll all again entice me
in your separate, scary ways.

And I’ll eagerly embrace the chance
to find those special places,
to line you up together
for the scariest displays!

So here you are, you’re all at rest,
together in this corner.
Wrapped up safe – until again -
your season comes around!

And in the night, when I am trying, hard,
to get my slumber
from you- ( in bags and boxes)
I won't expect to hear the slightest sound!

Good night, Monsters, my dears!
See you all again, next year!
