Reflection on pattern and abstraction of the subconscious

My niece, the poet 

Halloween, Halloween
Try your best not to scream
Beware of evil witches
That cast spells and cause twiches
Look out for that ghost
He’s the one that scares me the most
Little kids run about
“Trick-or-Treat!” they all shout
An erie howl fills the air
Be alert, be aware
Giant pumkins with goofy smiles
Invite you to stay a while
Halloween, Halloween
Try your best not to scream

by my extremely cool niece, Sydney Payne, age 12

  1. There seems to be hidden art in your entire family. 🙂 Tell your niece great job on the poem.

    I didn’t even know what a great poet she was. Makes me wonder what other surprises she has up her sleeve.
