Halloween Challenge:Day 1, The Witches Three (poem)

This is my Day 1 entry for 31 Days of Halloween Writing Challenge (“You’re a host of a ghoulish party. What’s on the menu?”) hosted by Flutter by Literature.

When ye host the witches three,

Best ye feed them well…

For if they leave unsatisfied,

They’ll surely cast a spell…

Young Hilda craves fresh eyes of newts,

Captured from the glade

Matilda wants chilled old snake blood,

She drinks like lemonade…

Dear Flo, who is the last of three,

Requires a special palate…

Don’t fix her types of any cheese,

Just serve her bat wing sallat!

  1. Thank you! I don’t know that I have a knack for it but I certainly do like to write it 🙂


  2. I absolutely love this. I’ve never had a knack for poetry but clearly, you do. This reminds me of the introduction to MacBeth with the three witches. 😀

  3. Excellent. I laughed at that. and the Names were interesting. My Grandmother’s name was Flo and she had a sister Hilda. Maybe they were Witches and they never told me. 🙂

  4. Thank you! Quite a coincidence on the names I would say…or maybe not…interesting. Are you sure there wasn’t another sister, Matilda, that they haven’t mentioned? 😉
