Spooky Poetry!

For this month’s teen reading challenge, teens had to read two books and write a Halloween haiku in order to be entered to win two tickets to Talon Falls: Dead End Haunted House.

Here are the spooky haiku’s we received!

Happy Halloween
It is fun to trick or treat
I scare small children.
-Ashley

The masked murderer,
He stalks his prey like a wolf,
During the dark night…
-Luke

Samhaini holiday.
Dress up, pranks, sweets, honor, death.
Now then, trick or treat?
-Alexia

Spooky, scary, fun
October thirty first, dark,
Candy, costumes, masks.
-Cassandra

Demons and ghouls roaming streets,
Or costumed children.
This is Halloween.
-Tyler

One dark lonely night,
I was scared out of my sight.
I saw a scary shadow.
But then I realized.
It was only me.
On Halloween night.
-Noah

It was a spooky spooky night.
Everything was deadly quiet.
Through the window.
Came a bright light that shone out the night.
-Noah

He got adopted
Then he forgot about
Next he saved Sam.
-Alyssa

With bats at great heights,
And vampires in the night,
Ghosts are in their flight.
-Jessica

There was a ghost house
A ghost lived in the ghost house
Happy Halloween!
-Cayla
