Poem: Happy Halloween



By Brett Van Sickle, Kenai

October has arrived, and it’s that time of year.

For costumes, candy, and a tad bit of fear.

Decorations are emerging, for the thrill of that night.

Ghosts, goblins, and witches, are out to spread fright.

Kids of all ages are out for a thrill.

As they race for the houses, looking for candy to fill.

Their trick or treat buckets, of all sizes and shapes.

This is not the evening, for healthy things like grapes.

Friends, neighbors, and families are all roaming the streets.

Each enjoying the memories, of there own trick or treats.
