This is Halloween
Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gateposts
Giving stare for stare,
Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirrings round of fate-cakes
With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets,
Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter
This is Halloween!

By Dorothy Brown Thompson

Pumpkin time is here again,
Time to play Trick or Treat.
Pumpkin time is here again,
Our spooky friends we'll meet.

See the costumes we have on,
Monsters, ghosts, goblins too.
See the costumes we have on,
Hear us all shout "Boo!"

(This poem may also be sung to the
tune of "Mary Had A Little Lamb")

My Haunted House
By Virginia Obrecht Dulworth

My house is getting spooky.
There's a ghost outside the door.
There's a skeleton in the closet,
and a spider on the floor.

There's a bat beside the fireplace.
There's a pumpkin on the stair.
There's a monster in the bathtub,
and a black cat on the chair.

There's a creepy crowd at my house.
I'm the witch they want to meet.
It's Halloween at my house,
and we're going to TRICK or TREAT!!
