It’s a tie! We have two winners in our “Your Poem Gives Me the Creeps” Halloween Poetry Contest. Congratulations to Anya Elude for “The Banshee” and Payam Nabarz for “One Who is Three.” Anya and Payam, we’ll be in touch soon. Thanks to everyone for helping us pick the creepiest poem. It wasn’t easy.

We’d also like to share the winning entry from our Halloween poem contest that we had for Llewellyn employees. Congratulations, Chuck!

Halloween Night

by Chuck Lukkason

I think that I shall never see a pumpkin as orange as can be.
So round and true and a stem so hard and green, a perfect Jack-O-Lantern it will make and all the children will scream.
I’ll put a candle in it to light up the night, it will flicker and glow and cause a great fright.
On Halloween Night the kids will come dressed as Dracula, Frankenstein, a Mummy in trauma and there even was scary Obama.
The Monsters came to the door and hollered their “tricks or treat” but not one of them could, perform a great feat.
They just open there bags, they all wanted candy, while there parents stood in the street, they’re all drinking Brandy.
And then came the big kids with their pillow cases streaming, staring at my pumpkin, with their eyes all a gleaming.
For I knew in my hart that it wouldn’t be long, my perfect Jack-O-lantern, soon would be gone.
And at last, I don’t think, I shall ever see, my pumpkin, smashed in the street, so completely.

The End.
