The poems that follow this post were collected together by my colleague Gemma McGirr and myself when we worked with the Primary Curriculum Support Programme. They were collected for teachers to use as stimulus for children's process artwork during Halloween time - as a move away from work dominated by stencils and templates of pumpkins  and witches. Gemma unfortunately passed away last year and I have just published as article, as a tribute to her,  in InTouch , the journal of the Irish Nation Teachers' Organisation, suggesting how this collection might inspire children to produce individual, unique and personal art.
