It’s that time again!
The Contest: Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words costume, dark, and haunt.
So here is my entry for the 5th Annual Halloweensie Contest! I don’t usually write in rhyme but since I only had 100 words, I thought I’d give it a try. 🙂
Be sure to visit Susanna’s blog and read all the other fabulous stories! Thanks for stopping by!
BOO, THE SCARY SCARECROW
As Boo the scarecrow watched from high,
he glared and frowned at passersby.
He proudly haunted night and day.
His scowl sent neighbors on their way.
Until one dark and eerie night
came Gilbert Ghost, a spooky sight!
Boo gasped and flipped, hung upside down.
No longer proud, he lost his frown.
Gill howled from underneath the sheet.
“It’s just a costume! Trick or Treat!”
Then with a sigh, Boo understood
that frightening others was not good.
So Boo the scarecrow winked and grinned.
He welcomed all, became a friend.
