Poetry Pleases: Halloween

Marjorie Parkinson presents a poem for Halloween

Over the centuries weve been a feared
of many types of things
Witches, elves, sprites, goblins
and anything with wings.

The poor Pendle Witches -
who didnt stand a chance.
If they survived the ducking stool,
at the end of a rope theyd dance.

Today the kids watch and worry
about things from Centre Earth,
And the types of sprites and hobbits
to whom its given birth.

But were here, its a Tuesday,
time for Friendship Club.
All this is superstition.
Ill just give this lamp a rub!
