Jessica's Witch

by Kate Demeree

With raven tresses and eyes of green
A mouth that's cruel, and a heart that's mean
She has a nose that's like a beak
And a large black mole upon her cheek
A pointy hat is just her style
One that's bent will make her smile
She lives for the time of the harvest moon
When she can safely ride her broom
She likes to know where her prey is at
For this purpose she keeps the cat
When she goes abroad this night
It will be her maiden flight
She cackles softly to herself
Grabs her hat from off the shelf
Plucks a whisker from off her chin
Smiles …her wicked grin
Gives a wiggle of her hips
Slides her tongue along her lips
Waves a hand with magicians flair
Breathes a spell into the air
What you see isn't what you'll get
This is a glamour you can bet
The eyes are hazel…the hair is red
All of the bad seems to have fled
Oh, …she knows what she's about
That's the reason she is going out
Out into the darkest night
To stalk the prey before the flight
Next time you look you'd best beware
Where you walk best have a care
For she is out there hunting yet
Don't let it be your soul she'll get…


Author's Note: This poem was written for Jessica.. who holds a very special place in my heart...Jess this is not good honey, but it is what you asked for. I love ya sweetie! Happy Halloween! (I told ya I could not do a witch!)

Now take that back, you knew you could do it and you did. A wonderful tribute to Halloween. I am going to have my kids read it when they get home. They will love it. Good work Kate. And I feel truly honoured to be the first to comment. *Smiles and Hugs*

I think I know her. That bent nose gives it away every time, hehe! Good stuff, Kate. Witches most be difficult to portray, especially coming from an Angel like you. But then again, it is a full moon. Peace...

Can't imagine anyone not liking the magical spell you cast with this one Kate. Marvelous!

Somehow you've given this witch enough charm that she doesn't seem liked she'd harm, maybe that should send out an alarm! She seems very much like Halloween! A good read aloud to younguns.
