Halloween

Yowling, prowling, growling cat
Why do you switch your tail like that?
Why do your eyes flash gold and green?
Could be--must be--Halloween!
Slinky, inky, blinky cat,
Why do you arch your back like that?
What scary creatures have you seen?
Could be--must be--Halloween!

  1. Little ghosts are giggling, and knocking on my door as I write, Rosemary. Fun times for children. I think this spooky cat, with the little green heart eyes, is really quite a sweetie!

  2. Down here in my part of the world people don't necessarily 'do' Halloween.

    1. It's rather a 'fringe activity' here too.

    1. Halloween is filtering slowly over to Europe bit by bit

  4. I'm happy with Halloween now it is just a bit of fun, although I'm sorry that councils and insurance companies have made Guy Fawes into a non starter these days.

    1. I always think that Halloween is enjoyed most by the very young, as long as it is not too spooky.

  6. Hello Rosemary, Happy Halloween to you too! I managed this year to have a few skeletons and eyeballs about, but the holiday is really not the same as it was--Halloween is a holiday that seems to cry out for overdoing it.

    1. Do the little children in Taiwan celebrate Jim?

    2. To a certain extent. There are a number of shops selling costumes and decorations, so I guess that there are some parties at school or wherever, but nothing to compare to the U.S., and certainly no trick-or-treating.

    3. I suspect that it will slowly grow, rather like Europe.

  7. Dear Rosemary,

    The Halloween I knew as a child has become (at least where I am) a very commercial holiday, over-managed by adults. My brother lives in a neighborhood to which children literally arrive by the busload, with city police directing traffic.

    1. Dear Mark - I really can't envisage that - are the children brought in on buses literally to round the neighbourhood Trick or Treating?

  8. Lovely little black cat with a funny Halloween poem. In our country Halloween was not celebrated, but the last few years it is coming up for children, pushed by the commerce.

    1. It is the same here Janneke - just small children going round the neighbourhood with their parents, but where I live not even that.

  11. We're just down to a very few candy treats now - I'll be closing up shop (as I like to call it) pretty soon. But there are those few last minute Halloween stragglers still to come, I'm sure. :) Hope you had a Happy Halloween too, Rosemary.

    1. Hope all your candy treats were relinquished before you shut up shop and that you saw lots of happy faces.
