Krazy Kats for Halloween

Our church crafting group makes some decorations and cards for our local nursing home.  These are some cats I have made for this Thanksgiving/Halloween craft fest. I made them out of socks I bought at a dollar store, using left over felt, buttons and some bright orange ribbon.

Spooky Poems

Ghosts and goblins at my door,

Ravens quoting, “Never more,”

Creatures big and creatures small,

Some who’ve barely learned to crawl,

Armed with bags and pillow cases,

Grinning pumpkins, scary faces.

Somewhere from around my feet

Comes the chorus – “Trick or treat!”

On Hallowe’en Night

The cats on the fence are yowling,

Distant coyotes are howling,

Ghosties and goblins are prowling

On Hallowe’en night!


Bats through the trees are winging,

Bell Tower ropes are swinging,

Tots to their mothers are clinging,

On Hallowe’en night!


Dry leaves across roads go skittering,

And candy wrappers are littering,

As trick or treaters go flittering,

On Hallowe’en night!


Blackened tree branches are creaking,

The wind round corners is shrieking,

Teenagers go hide and seeking,

On Hallowe’en night!


Pumpkins alight are dimming,

Spiders their webs are spinning,

The onrush of treaters is thinning,

On  Hallowe’en night!
