Hello Poetry Lovers
How could I let Halloween go by without mentioning it?! Which I nearly did, and I’m very grateful to superb poet Trisha Broomfield who wrote this wonderful piece.
It’s marvellous and clever and I had such fun illustrating this wonderful poem. Especially as there were cats involved, needless to say….

Broomstick F Type
I didn’t buy it for the label
and the ride is rather hard
I feel each bump and boulder,
the back end’s rather charred.
The suspension’s a bit iffy
the turning circle’s poor
but it shoots at speed in seconds
and you should hear it roar.
You do not like the colour
and for some magenta shouts,
it’s not black and sleek like others,
but it’s me, there is no doubt.
There is no room for passengers
except, of course, the cat,
he has his own gold seatbelt
and a black and pointy hat.
If you hear a whoosh and soft meow
it’s only me and Perry,
we do our rounds of witches’ pubs
and get ourselves quite merry.
So on Halloween, close curtains
but keep on your outside lights,
I find navigation tricky
on these dark and spooky nights.
