By Robin Roberts

When the wind begins to blow
With a full moon and an eerie glow
And frightful things are all around
Just stay and stand your ground.
Things that go bump in the night
Are going to give you such a fright
They're really nothing to fear
But they're going to be everywhere
If you look, it's really quite cool
Witches and goblins, ghosts and ghouls
Monsters, vampires, aliens and more.
These things are running from door to door
As you look closer you will see
These things are children asking for candy
And then you understand the scene
It's not the end of the world, it's Halloween!

About the Author

My name is Robin Roberts, and I'm from Pennsylvania. I'm a single/divorced mother of two beautiful girls who are the lights of my world. I am also engaged to a wonderful man who lights up the other half of my world. I work as an administrative assistant and have worked in the same career field for most of my adult life. I write poetry in my spare time.

I'm a Beatlemaniac, having loved the Beatles all of my life. I also enjoy other classic rock bands, but no other band/musician has captured my heart quite like those four lads from Liverpool.

My interests, other than the aforementioned, include hiking/walking, camping, traveling, bowling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

Poetry is the music of our souls. //o-o\\
