A chapter in the book Sories Poetically Speaking

One Witch's Halloween

by BethShelby


I’ll tell you a tale of a wise old crone,

who flies a broomstick, but she's not alone.

With a one-eyed cat and a wee wishbone,  

‘Maggie Ophelia Belinda Malone.’


This witch makes house calls on Halloween night.

You may get lucky and see her in flight.

Don’t be afraid as she comes into sight;

she means no harm, and her kitty don’t bite.


On one night a year, she carries some treats.

The kids trick or treating enjoy her sweets,

but she will make sure no one overeats.

and everyone’s safe when crossing the streets.


So, if you go out on Halloween night,

look for the good witch and carry a light.

There are some witches who’ll give you a fright,

But Maggie Ophelia tries to do right.
