Halloween Song: A poem for National Poetry Day

Halloween Song  by Marjorie Barrows

Published in The Giant Golden Book of Elves and Fairies (1951)

Three little witches
Pranced in the garden,
Three little witches
Danced from the moon;
One wore a wishing hat,
One held a pussy cat,
One went a pitty pat
And whispered a tune.

Out flew an owl
Who glared at the kitten,
Out flew an owl
Who stared at the rest,
Dancing, with haughty nose,
Each on the others’ toes
Down past the pumpkin rows
Under his nest.

Three little witches
Blew on their broomsticks,
Three little witches
Flew to their queen,
Over the windy glen
Into the night . . . But then
They will be back again
Next Halloween.
