In this scary flick
can I be a Princess?
let me wear pink
and I’ll carry your
pretty pumpkin head
as the sun begins to sink
and a flame will rise
perfect pyramid eyes
dispelling evil spirits
with a wink
Written for dVerse where De Jackson asks us to write a Quadrille poem of 44 words with the prompt word: Scare
When I was a little girl, I always wanted to dress as a princess and my parents indulged me. My mother made the costume in the picture!
Fun Fact: Historically Jack -O-Lanterns were thought to ward off evil spirits which is why they were placed on porches and windowsills.

Oh, I love this so much!
Thanks, Bridgette, great to hear, thanks for stopping by! 🎃
What a great costume, and poem! Love this. We could use a little more light and magic in the world.
Thanks, appreciate the prompt, and I agree, we can choose to fill the world with light and not darkness!! 🕯️
I apparently always wanted to be a bunny. My mother made our costumes too. I don’t have many pictures. I remember one year I was a light blue bunny and another year I was a pink bunny.
😆 Fun times, I wish I had more pics too, but alas no cell phone cameras back in those days!
I love your photo and your poem. So cute!
Thanks, Dwight! 😇🖤🦇
