Polka-Dot Witches

Polka-dot witches
Ride wizzy-wig brooms
And streak ‘cross the moon
Trailing candy-corn plumes.

Their hats glow with stars
They plucked from the sky
And their spider-web capes
Gather smiles as they fly

They’re the sparkliest,
Happiest witches in sight;
But they only come out
When it’s Halloween Night!

~ Barbara Vance
