Truly a fun poem, perfect for children and adults. You added a scary touch which made it great for Halloween. Your picture added to your story poem, but didn't overwhelm. Your entire presentation gets a thumbs up.

I can imagine your poem being read out to a classroom of young children. Their their reactions would be priceless for sure... sequels, groans, giggles and laughter followed by full on, excited conversation. Good luck with this one !

This was an interesting collection of limericks that tell an interesting and scary take. I love the activity you suggest to use with this story. Sounds like a fun task indeed. God surely blessed Thanks for sharing that great idea.

Hi Sandra. I love your poem here. The rhymes are super and I must say, each stanza reminds me a bit of a limerick. Is that my imagination or did you intend that to be? In any event, job well done. :) Bob

This is an exceptional Halloween poem. It should scare the stuffing out of someone. Excellent rhyme and a very scary story. It should do very well in the contest. Good luck.

Hello mystery writer. I like your poem. You goe through the litany of all the things that happen at Halloween parties for kids. I remember as a child going to Halloween party and they had a bowl of grapes. Of course those were eyeballs. My favorite was cornsilk because that was hair. I didn't eat any candy that Halloween. Good luck in the contest.

This is a most cool Halloween poem for children of all ages. I like the activity that goes along with it and I can imagine the adult children having great fun with it.

Fine metre an rhyme and lots of good imagery and action.

Just one typo:
Where they had burried (buried) old
Joel.

Best of luck to you in the voting booth. :)

Gloria

Haha - I'm just a big kid and still love Halloween. And, of course, I loved reading this fun little romp.

Great image, fun-to-read poem and good old orange background to really get us in the mood. Well done. Hugs, Lou

Oh wow. Quite a gruesome piece, but fitting for the time that is Halloween. I will admit, I think it may be a bit too advanced for the young ages, but definitely appealing to the slightly older kids.

    Thank you for your review. And, you are right about very young children. I suggest third grade through adults. They have fun too! Lol.
