Dear poets, Halloween is here and with it the winners of the Halloween Poem Competition - 2004
We will be featuring the five poems in the coming few days. Enjoy!
The five poems featured are:
Night of the Dead
Children hold tight
and cover your head
This is the night
we walk with the dead
Samhain is come
and our loved ones roam
Dead for years now
but they're coming home
Moon guide their souls
like lanterns hung bright
Guard us, keep us
on Halloween Night
The veil is thin
and the two worlds meet
The river is bridged
by Charon's dark fleet
Crone is watching
her cackle the wind
howling through trees
as the dead ascend
So hold tight tots
cower under sheets
The dead are here
bringing their own treats

This year will be different
Hoard your candies little goblins
for a trick is what you'll get
when the likes of you step to my door
and haunt my doorstep yet
For years you have tormented me
with your tricksy little ways
but this time it will be I who gets
the upper hand, the coup de grace
no more poo on my doorstep
burning like a torch
no more toiletries flung about
my yard and on my porch
no more eggs and shell about
my brand new car I shout
no more, I say.. NO MORE!
A trick for me you think
little urchins from a hellish stink
I'll put you all in your hellish place
and laugh aloud to think
how I finally got you little tripes
and beat you at the game
Just wait and see you'll be the key
to the best halloween for me, teehee!
There is a knock at my door! SHHH!
God I love Halloween

All Hallows Eve
Swirling mists and darkened doors,
Lights in windows not on until dawn.
Hidden away from the mysterious night,
Away from the ghosts and ghouls that take flight.
Is it all a figment of the mind?
Childhood monsters that come alive.
We carve our pumpkins and find our masks,
To have fun on this most scary night.
Is it real or is it fake?
A chorus chanting ‘trick or treat’.
Groups of children smile and plead,
Once a year on All Hallows Eve.

Warning to all kids
In the dark they gather
all kinds of nasty things
spiders, snakes and even a few black cats
to plan what to do
your neighbour just might be a witch
who tonight will take on
her true identity
and with her broom fly to your window
of pumpkin lanterns
they just might be alive
and never, ever enter the graveyard
on this all hallow's eve
Written by [Linderel
round and round go pumpkins around
hand in hand sings monsters band
you see the broom in front of the moon?
it's a witch who got a cat and a pot
children shout you "trick or treat!"
you should give 'em candy or they will beat!
'cause today is halloween, the day of fright
the day of slinking in the middle of the night
this is the night when monsters walk
this is the night when bats can talk
you'd better go inside and lock the doors
this is the night of evil force
you should be frightened, you should be scared
behind every corner is some creature prepared
to scare you stiff and make you scream
believe me, it's true, not just a bad dream
tonight all bad creatures are dancing and singing
and creepy halloween to you all bringing
as a monster, ghost, maybe thing with a fang...
would you like to join our halloween gang?
