"Predators and Prey" by Neel Kanamangala

Today we kick off a special Halloween feature on the blog! In the next few days leading up to Halloween, we will be featuring poetry on this topic, from the spooky to the light-hearted. We hope these pieces help you get into the Halloween spirit!

Our first piece comes from Dancing With The Pen II contributor Neel Kanamangala, whose poem "Technology Every Day" is featured in the book. Order a personalized copy of Dancing With The Pen II: a collection of today's youth writing here or on Amazon here.

Predators and Prey 

When the moon is full, and the sun has set
Dig deep, fly high, let nothing cause you to fret
Beware, beware, the coming of the one
Or else he will appear, and cause your blood to run 

Beware, beware, the falling to the deep
In darkness dwells and secrets keep
For he walks alone in fading light
As he goes hunting through the night

Monsters lurk in the trees
Death is a calm breeze
I am not afraid of thee
The strongest monster in the forest, is me

His blades are sharp, his aim is keen
So beware, beware, the coming of the unseen
His victims are slain, one by one
A prayer to those below, the hunt has now begun


Neel Kanamangala is eleven years old and in the seventh grade. He spends his free time playing games, reading and swimming.


Order Dancing With The Pen I & Dancing With The Pen II directly (personalized copies available!) or via Amazon.
