This Year’s Poem

The Witches of Delray 2016

by Jane Ratcliffe

It was five years ago on Halloween morn’
A small coven gathered to weather the storm

With their brooms all bedazzled in the dark spooky flair
That handful of witches took off to the air!

Giggling, cackling, casting spells of good deeds
Those wonderful witches, they planted the seeds.

And let me tell you, my friend, how those seeds of grown
Some 80 plus witches can brag that they’ve flown!

And you can fly too, just put on your hat,
Then grab your best broom.  It’s as easy as that!

For The Witches of Delray only fly once a year
And you don’t want to miss it, now trust me my dear!

And when we land in the square, our spells all but cast
Our work now completed, it’s always a blast!

So join us on that day, and all the days that will come
For we witches are busy! Our work’s NEVER done!

As our coven continues to grow every year, we have more fun but we also face new challenges with keeping the ride safe for us and our community.  Once again, we are very excited to announce the Delray Beach Bicycle Club’s will be providing rider support for this year’s ride! escort

If you’re not familiar with the Delray Beach Bicycle Club, they’re dedicated to helping the community develop the proper skills for bicycle safety and fitness. Together with Human Powered Delray, they share a goal to it make it safer, easier and more fun to walk and bike in Delray. The efforts of these groups include community bicycle safety education for both bicyclists and motorist, community bike rides, and working with local and regional officials to improve safe biking and pedestrian-friendly roadways and paths in Delray Beach.

The Witches of Delray represent our community and should do her proud by setting a stellar example of safe, responsible bicycling practices. This wonderful partnership will help ensure we do just that and have the safest and most fun flight yet!
