I don't like vampires

They're toothy and scary.

I cannot stand werewolves

They're noisy and hairy.

But ghosts

I just love them

They glide across halls

And what's even cooler

They glide right through walls.

The Visit

Cautiously

creeping

down

the stairs,

carefully avoiding the creaks,

we stop

and take each other's hand.


At the bottom

we tiptoe,

trembling

towards the door.

Almost afraid to breathe

we slowly,

gently,

push it open.


Beneath the twinkling lights

sit the gifts.

'He's been,' we whisper,

'He's been.'
