Dear poets, Halloween is here and with it the winners of the Halloween Poem Competition - 2004.
We will be featuring the five poems in the coming few days. Enjoy!

The five poems featured are:

Night of the Dead

Children hold tight
and cover your head
This is the night
we walk with the dead

Samhain is come
and our loved ones roam
Dead for years now
but they're coming home

Moon guide their souls
like lanterns hung bright
Guard us, keep us
on Halloween Night

The veil is thin
and the two worlds meet
The river is bridged
by Charon's dark fleet

Crone is watching
her cackle the wind
howling through trees
as the dead ascend

So hold tight tots
cower under sheets
The dead are here
bringing their own treats

Written by [giadriana]

This year will be different

Hoard your candies little goblins
for a trick is what you'll get
when the likes of you step to my door
and haunt my doorstep yet

For years you have tormented me
with your tricksy little ways
but this time it will be I who gets
the upper hand, the coup de grace

no more poo on my doorstep
burning like a torch
no more toiletries flung about
my yard and on my porch
no more eggs and shell about
my brand new car I shout
no more, I say.. NO MORE!

A trick for me you think
little urchins from a hellish stink
I'll put you all in your hellish place
and laugh aloud to think

how I finally got you little tripes
and beat you at the game
Just wait and see you'll be the key
to the best halloween for me, teehee!

There is a knock at my door! SHHH!

God I love Halloween

Written by [TheRogue]

All Hallows Eve

Swirling mists and darkened doors,
Lights in windows not on until dawn.
Hidden away from the mysterious night,
Away from the ghosts and ghouls that take flight.
Is it all a figment of the mind?
Childhood monsters that come alive.
We carve our pumpkins and find our masks,
To have fun on this most scary night.
Is it real or is it fake?
A chorus chanting ‘trick or treat’.
Groups of children smile and plead,
Once a year on All Hallows Eve.

Written by [Keii]

Warning to all kids

In the dark they gather
all kinds of nasty things
spiders, snakes and even a few black cats
to plan what to do
this year

Watch out
your neighbour just might be a witch
who tonight will take on
her true identity
and with her broom fly to your window

Children beware
of pumpkin lanterns
they just might be alive
and never, ever enter the graveyard
on this all hallow's eve

Written by [Linderel]

Halloween song

round and round go pumpkins around
hand in hand sings monsters band
you see the broom in front of the moon?
it's a witch who got a cat and a pot

children shout you "trick or treat!"
you should give 'em candy or they will beat!
'cause today is halloween, the day of fright
the day of slinking in the middle of the night

this is the night when monsters walk
this is the night when bats can talk
you'd better go inside and lock the doors
this is the night of evil force

you should be frightened, you should be scared
behind every corner is some creature prepared
to scare you stiff and make you scream
believe me, it's true, not just a bad dream

tonight all bad creatures are dancing and singing
and creepy halloween to you all bringing
as a monster, ghost, maybe thing with a fang...
would you like to join our halloween gang?

2004-10-19 [indiechick]: *nods* agrees with mnightshad^^

2004-10-19 [Prettyinpink2]: One of my teachers said I had spelled it right. No offense, but she said it was mid-evil. I'll change it if u want me 2 though it doesn't matter 2 me.

2004-10-19 [indiechick]: yeah tis medieval. or variations on tht theme.

2004-10-20 [mnightshade]: perhaps the teacher should go back to school? ;)

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: I entered my poem because I love 2 write poetry, I'm not sure I'll win, I probably won't because no one understands it very well......  =<

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Important: Someone edited this page, but has spyware on his/her computer. Download anti-spyware programs to make sure you have no spyware on your computer before you edit pages: it was a bit messed up but luckily fixed now (for which you have [font], [Ittai] and me to thank ;) . New entries can be posted on Halloween Poetry 04, Page 2, but please no spyware! :)

2004-10-23 [Gentle Genocide]: ahh, i cant put my name on my poem, i dont know the password to the page! Im number 37.

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Done!

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: u don't have 2 know the password.... at least I think if we do I'm in trouble!

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: I passwordprotected the page now to prevent people from still adding poems. Why would you be in trouble?

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: Because I added mine without asking for the password... and people get very touchy around that subject.... I got fussed out the other day for it!!!! :<

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Without the password you can't edit the page. The password has only been entered an hour ago, I don't know when you entered your poem. Where is your poem? (what number?)

2004-10-23 [Gentle Genocide]: thanks a million :)

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: Mine is number 26. I think around there, I'm pretty sure it's 26. I added mine over a week ago!!! Ahh I see now.... *Smiles*

2004-10-23 [The Dark Lord]: thats why then

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: I'm blonde I get those silly little times, that are sometimes quite awkward!!!! :)

2004-10-23 [The Dark Lord]: thats ok

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: Good I was hoping it would be....! :)  =)

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Hihi! I was thinking you had yours up a long time you did nothing wrong hon! *cuddles*

2004-10-23 [Prettyinpink2]: Yay, I do alot of things wrong, and I think I may be in trouble for spamming? =o I was asking people to visit my wiki and I didn't know it was spamming until someone I had messaged, messaged me back telling me to stop that it was spamming.... =(

2004-10-23 [The Dark Lord]: ohhhh.....tell the truth and you should be alright, who told you off?

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Ah, but now you know though. One learns things by making mistakes, believe me: I also make many! :*

2004-10-23 [The Dark Lord]: me to, i have made mistakes.....

2004-10-23 [Sue Falkenkralle]: Just out of curiosity, someone else entered his/her poem who's native language isn't English?

2004-10-23 [The Dark Lord]: what do u mean, do you mean can yoiu enter a poem in a different language?

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: Where? Which poemnumber?

2004-10-23 [Sue Falkenkralle]: no, not in a diffrent language, just with, well not so good english, is that ok?

2004-10-23 [Sunrose]: No, entries with very poor english are not considered very good, so it decreases your chances of winning to a very very low point.

2004-10-23 [Noexistantanymo]: I could help out with it <<   >>

2004-10-23 [Sue Falkenkralle]: can you take a look at mine (#4)? It's the first time i wrote an english poem, and well I 'm just not sure...

2004-11-01 [Keii]: Ah, okay... so I haven't lost all hope then XD

2004-11-01 [Maurer's conclusions]: The chance of glory is near. I can taste the ichors of immortality!

2004-11-01 [Keii]: Hehehe... I'm not pinning my hopes on winning. *shrugs* I had fun writing it, don't really need to win... though it would be nice lol ;)

2004-11-01 [Maurer's conclusions]: Be silent, thou with thy opposing views.:P Winning would be fun, since then people would read the poem, which was written more as a joke than anything scary...

2004-11-01 [Keii]: Yeah, having people read it would be nice.

2004-11-01 [indiechick]: good luck anyway you lot n well done giadriana!!
