Ten year old Keyzy has learned about collaborative blogging and benefited from international comments on the Halloween poem she posted on the  collaborative blog, Once Upon A Midnight.  With ten days still to go to Halloween you could join in the fun too. Perhaps you might like to add to the round robin story generated from a photograph and prompt by a member of the Connect Team.  If you want to post as a guest the sign in details at Once Upon A Midnight are all explained here.

Hi, Keyzy here. I come from Australia, but I celebrate Halloween because my Dad comes from America. I’m also ten years old. Our house is decked out with Halloween stuff .(Pictures coming with our next post). When people drive past they always stare, that’s because they don’t celebrate halloween in Australia. I made up a poem about Halloween. Hope you like it.

We’ve got bats, we’ve got cats, hanging from the roof, I lost my tooth.

Maybe the mummy is a dummy or the devil’s up to its level.

Or the ghost wants to be toast and the bony is very lonely.

Since it’s Halloween let’s have some fun not like those teens that say it’s dumb.

Say trick or treat to whoever you may meet.



I loved this post Keyzy and hope that you are having a lot of fun decorating your place. Make sure you do post lots of your photographs. Everyone here will love to see them. And do keep writing poems and finding fun images to show us.

Hi Kezy, you may have never been to America to celebrate Halloween, but you certainly know what it feels like to celebrate it here- which is amazing to me.

Please do send some pictures here- if you can. I would love to see your decorations.

Halloween Wishes From

Keyzey, I really do love your Halloween post. Maybe folks seeing all your decorations will start celebrating Halloween too. Wouldn’t that be fun.
