The Witches' Tea Party






Hello my pretties, come inside and I shall tell a tale,
of three old, ugly witches named Hilda, Gertrude and Gayle.


Each year the witches gathered to celebrate with tea,
and reminisced of younger days and how it used to be.


But this year, it was different, for they were sad, you see
time had left them longing for the way life used to be.


They sipped upon their cups of tea and tears welled in their eyes,
as they spoke of all the hopes and dreams they would never realize.



Then slowly, their excitement grew as they tossed about a plan,
they would cast a spell upon themselves and then life would be grand.


Dreaming of a youthful life, the witches gathered round,
The Book of Spells was opened and laid upon the ground.


The pages were all faded now, and difficult to read,
but their time was passing quickly, for it was Hallows' Eve.


They chanted and they danced about, their words hung in the air,
the candle flame burned brighter, and the smoke swirled through their hair.


The wind began to blow and howl, and leaves were swirling 'bout,
the witches chanted louder, and POOF! the flame went out.


And there upon the ground they sat, humming a soft, sweet tune....
three youthful, little witches.......under a Halloween moon.




The moral of this story be,

when trying a new spell,

Be careful what you wish for......

and read all instructions well.

Thanks for visiting my tea party.......

Who wouldn't love to house these three beautiful magical witchy bits? What a wonderful tale. I was saddened when I first read "three ugly witches" I told myself, "Not people talking about ugly witches again!" I sighed and continued reading. I loved the transformation and smiled.

We should always read all the way through, huh?

Happy All Hallow's Eve!
