Magic’s Afoot

Well here goes, my very first blog here on WordPress and I still haven’t the foggiest what I’m doing, lol… Have moved here from Windows Live and am new to putting my poems on here so be patient with me…Anyway with Halloween just around the corner my very first poem here is named Magic Afoot, hope you enjoy…Much love always…LynnKaren




Magic’s Afoot


Magic’s afoot on Halloween night
Ghostliness beings and witches in flight
Beautiful Angel’s whom once looked so sweet
Rap on your window and rants Trick or Treat!

A spell which is cast to make children change
Just for one night, well isn’t that strange?
Feed them with candy and they’ll disappear
Not for forever but for another full year!

This magic is potent and gets under your skin
If you are happy then the grinning begins
But if you are grumpy woe feel my wrath
As all that they wish for is to make you laugh!

Yes magic’s afoot through our babies eyes
Of beautiful dragons or sleighs in the skies
A memento of childhood of how the world seems
Of Fairies or goblins in the world of daydreams!

  1. Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat?. Have you got some chocolate for me please?..Mmm…sorry, busy eating now..!!
    wonderful blog there Lynn..You can almost feel the atmosphere.
    Now…the only way I’ve been able to keep tabs on people is to compile a list of Http addresses.(Blogs I follow) but there’s also the option of ‘subscribing’ to people blogs, (when you’re visiting their site, hover your cursor over ‘subscribe’ on your top info bar, (second in from the right) and a drop down >’subscribe to blog’ will appear. click it and a tick will appear to show you’ve successfully set it up.
    You’ll be able to follow all their updates from then on. By ‘My Subscriptions’ >’Read My Subscriptions’ third in on the top info bar..and any peoples sites you’ve added will be shown from your Dashboard.
    I know it sounds complicated but once you get used to using all the options you want, from your dashboard…well..it’s magic!!
    Hope that all makes sense?…xPenx

  3. and… (yes it’s me again)..if you go from My Blog>dashboard>my comments <(second down on the left) ..It'll give a run through of all the recent comments you've left…and you'll see if anyone has answered you from their own comment box, a handy feature is the 'reply to thread' which takes you right back to your friends site and you can say something else if you want to!! Neat eh? ..MY oh my, someone take this mouse from my hands …Please!! xPenx

    • Thanks Pen, I’m so slow at this but will give it a go, lol, I found out how to send it to Facebook as some of my old friends are on there also, I do miss the old spaces live but hopefully will make this my new domain, lol… Your an Angel, hugs…Lynn xx

    Hi Lynn hope you’re doing well and getting used to blogging here, it IS good for blogging but I do miss the old spaces with guestbook etc, you can add an extra page here and make it a guestbook but you cant leave graphics which is a shame, would have made the site more like home…lol I am on myspace alot as you have a guestbook where you can leave graphics so that is fun and what’s missing here. I think msn made a very big mistake with their changes, so many have gone else where now. I still have my site for mails etc but dont use messenger social any more, cant really see the use of it now. anyway’s big hugs, keep blogging. miss ya… hey a long comment.. lol cant even do that on wls..lol xxxxx

    October 28, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    • Hi Summer, thanks for dropping by again as I feel like I need my friends on here…I joined myspace ages ago but preffered live spaces…
      I’m also on Facebook as nearly all of my old friends are there but I can’t set my poetry out properly, lol… So I’m hoping to make a real
      good go of this place, lol…Will still stay on facebook though so I can still talk to my old friends, that way I get the best of both worlds,
      hehe…Big Hugs, for your night…Lynn xxx
