Halloween Witch

I’m a witch without a broom,
A witch without a hat;
I haven’t any cauldron;
I do not own a cat.
Don’t ask about a spell book—
I don’t have one of those.
As you can see, I haven’t any
Warts upon my nose.
Yet I can conjure magic—
Make no mistake of that.
I made this candy disappear
In fifteen seconds flat!

~ Barbara Vance
