Children’s Poetry #2

I’m sharing a slightly spooooooky one with you today,  which isn’t really like me, but it managed to pop out of my head anyway.

The reason I’m publishing  two posts today is ALL CARL’S FAULT for egging me on. Terrible influence. 

You can visit his whimsical adventures in poetic delight through this secret door.

Secondly, this is a special dedication to my friend Linda, whose blog, if you haven’t visited already (seriously,  where have you been?) is a gem and you can pop over there through this interdimensional portal.

She requested  a partner poem for Everyday Magic and funnily enough, I had one.


In the Shadows 

Tiptoe softly,
Make no sound.

Things lurk in shadows

All around.

Make no noise

So they won’t hear,

They’re coming soon-

They’ll smell your fear.

In the corner 

Of the room

Don’t look their way,

You’ll meet your doom.

If the floorboards 

Start to creak-


Don’t move 

And don’t dare speak. 

They’ll slither out

Of their dark lair,

And try to catch you 


They make no sound,

So lock your door.

Because they’ll get you-

That’s for sure.

  2. A really spooooooooky one, but it is beautiful. I love it.💕💕 Now you’ve inspired me to do this little one here😄😄 Check it:

    Tippy toes
    On the floor,
    Heard a knock
    On the door,
    Opened it
    And looked outside,
    But my little ride.😉😉😄😄
