Halloween Verse Part 2

Last week I shares a poem from my as yet unpublished and still very much work-in-progress collection of Halloween type poems for kids/Tweens. Here’s another one. This one’s slightly spooky, but not really scary.

I’m saving the scary stuff for another time.

Anyway, I hope you like it. I’ll be back to my old self again next week. Until then, happy Halloween.

AT NIGHT I HEAR THE VOICES

At night I hear the voices
In the trees, or in my dreams?
It doesn’t really matter
I hear them just the same.

They start off soft and lowly
And get louder through the night
“Ethan…Ethan…EEE-THA-AN!!!”
They’re calling out my name.

What could it be that they want
And why are they calling me?
These questions they keep haunting
Their answers I must know.

There’s only one solution
One ending to this story
I don’t know what awaits me
But know that I must go.
