stars fade as clouds hide the moon
but the laughter of children
is still heard
from one door to the next
excited and free
though watchful parents stand near
to conquer their fear

I made several seriously dreadful attempts at writing to your prompt for this weekend's Sunday mini-challenge. I copied out the rhyme scheme, line by line, and studied it, tried to do it, but failed completely.
I did, however, manage the syllable count, Kerry, and my last two lines do rhyme as per instruction! I'm so relieved you provide us with a free verse option, and so glad you also included photos. The ones by Ella and Izy turned out to be just what I needed. My submission is certainly predictable, and possibly quite banal, but I can't quite write Hallowe'en horror, being of a somewhat nervous disposition, you understand.
Thanks for continuing the Sunday challenge. I always enjoy it, whatever my result.
