The Cat and the Ghost !!!!

Wednesday 24 October 2007 11 responses

As part of Halloween and Captain Lifecruiser's Halloween Scary Story celebrations I'm posting a poem that my dear Dad wrote when I was a little girl....I still remember it...

The Ghost floated in the through the open door

And the Cat gave a scream as he leapt off the floor

His eyes bulged wide and his limbs grew taut

As he watched the ghost begin to haunt

The Ghost rocked to and fro at a leisurely pace

And he seemed very friendly by the smile on his face

But friendly or not we still cannot say

For we haven't seen the cat since that day !!!!!

    Oh, that was a nice ghostly poem, purrfect for kids :-)

    Thanks for spreading the word about the Halloween celebration!

    It's needed to get more to come and have fun with us :-)

    Too cute, Kim. It looks as if the cat took off like a bat out of hell.

    Hee Hee Hee! That's how us yanks say it anyway.

    Captain, my ghost stories are inappropriate for the season of fun otherwise I'd join in and spill my guts over this life experience. Maybe some other time. Other than that, I'm at a lost for spooky tales and folk lore. :(

    Cute poem, Kim, and a nice memory for you, of your Dad.

    I see you're on ArtWanted, but I don't remember bumping into you there...?

    Happy Halloweeen! (well, almost)

    Awesome poem. Sounds like your dad was a lot of fun. Kind of reminds me of something I would write just not so well.

    As a ghost hunter and cat lover, among a multitude of other wonders, I love that poem!

    It's obvious art runs in your veins!!
