Witch with a Heart

Poems for kids The Witch With a Heart Halloween poems
This witch just isn't a very good witch... but does it really matter?
Witch with a Heart

I was born a normal babe

No crooked nose or warts.

My family were most upset

“This witch is out of sorts!”

 

I had no cackle, only cried,

And then they taught me magic.

I couldn’t conjure any spells

My witchcraft skills were tragic!

 

Flying lessons weren’t so great

My broom’s now in the trash

Turns out I’m afraid of heights

I tend to faint and crash!

 

And when it comes to potions

I confess I’m having trouble.

My cauldron tends to gurgle up

A toxic form of bubble!

 

Then there was my black cat, George

Who made my tonsils itch.

“Allergic to a cat?” Mum cried,

“You’re not a normal witch!”

 

Evil hexes aren’t my thing

I have no cunning streak

My power is my skill to love

They call me, ‘odd’ and ‘freak’!

 

But I don’t care, I’ve got my friends

I’m happy for a start

I’m non-conformist, so unique

The one witch with a heart!
