Twas the Night of Halloween

February 13th, 2013 | by admin admin | in Safety Advice |    0   comments



'Twas the night of Hallowe’en, when all through the home

The children were bursting, ready to roam

The candles were set in the pumpkins with care

In hopes that l’il goblins soon would be there

The tricksters were bundled all snug in their threads

While visions of chocolates danced in their heads

Sophie sparkled in white; her wand lit the night

Ethan the Pirate wielded a sword fierce and bright

But out on the lawn there arose such a clatter

They raced off to see what was the matter

Poor Billy had tripped on a wire, bumped into a tree

With his heavy black mask, he could not see

The rain pouring down on the lawn, on the street

Made the ground slide and slip beneath his feet.

Then, what to their wondering eyes should appear

But dazzling fireworks filling the air

Far, far away, a jolly old man, so lively and quick

Lit the fuse with a special stick

The children squealed with glee, but the noise was too loud

For Bubbles the beagle bolted, panicked by the crowd

He streaked into the street, without stopping or slowing

The kids yelled and screamed, tears began flowing

Luckily, the drivers all followed the rules

Their cars snaked slowly, like they do around schools

They stopped for Bubbles, who meekly came

When Dad whistled, and shouted, and called him by name

Everyone cheered and called, as they marched out of sight,

"Happy Hallowe’en to all, and to all a good night!”
