Written by 9 year old Jennifer
last October
in anticipation of the coming of


One  dark  and  scary  night
I  crept  outside  to  a  fresh  moon  light
I  shouldn't  have  gone
It  was  very  dark
I  thought  I  saw  a  witch
but  that  was  just  the  start
The  witch  swooped  down
and  tied  me  to  her  broom
I  tried  to  get  free
but  what  for
I'm  doomed
She  took  me  to  her  castle
it  gave  me  quite  a  scare
it  was  so  scary
that  I  nearly  lost  my  hair
She  grabbed  me  by  the  arm
and  took  me  to  her  room
She  chained  me  to  her  table
and  left  me  with  her  broom
I  looked  around  the  bedroom
and  then  I  saw  a  tool
I  don't  know  what  it's  called
but  it  looked  pretty  cool
It  was  laying  right  beside  me
so  I  grabbed  it  in  my  hand
I  used  it  on  the  chains
and  they  broke
now  ain't  that  grand
I  jumped  down  off  the  table
and  took  the  broom  with  me
I  said  some  magic  words
and  out  the  window
Past  the  houses  moon  and  stars
and  home  to  bed
where  I  dream  of  chocolate  bars

Keep this up, Jennifer, and you'll be a great poet someday. That's my only warning.
