Waiting for Halloween

Waiting at the door in my star-studded hat,

Sitting at my pointy feet is my trusty cat;

In my hand a cauldron of Halloween treats,

Tasty spiders’ legs and cobwebs to eat.

I’ve woven a spell to lure them in,

With twinkling eye and cheery grin;

They think I’m in fancy dress with my warty snitch,

How surprised they’ll be to discover I’m a witch!
