The Halloween Ball

Updated on September 5, 2014

A Costume for the Halloween Ball

On Halloween I'll dance the night

And I hope don't appear a fright

Around the ballroom with a swirl

I hope to be the prettiest girl

All poetry copyright Mindy Makuta (aka MyFairLadyah) Reprint with Permission

I've Been Invited to a Ball

I've been invited to dance at court

A ball gown I shall wear

With all the trappings of the sort

Required to be a Lady Fair

A tiara of diamonds adorning my tresses

With jewels about my neck and ears

Oh, all the Dames will wear fine dresses

The men well medaled to meet their Peers

Waltzes will be played for us

To sashay round in three quarter measure

And the fine ladies will be all afuss

For Unmasking Hour's subtle pleasure

This Halloween Eve the ballroom will be

Set for the costumed attendees

Decored in orange and black drapery

And in the corners, cobwebbed trees

A Wall of Masks
