  • A BOO-GRAM GREETING!

    Green cats eyes
    in midnight gloom
    fly with the witch
    on her ragged broom
    Ghosts and shadow people
    evade our sight.
    None may not see what they might.
    We begin our door to door Halloween flight.
    Not knowing our immediate blight
    we bravely approach your door and RING……
    TRICK OR TREAT!! We say with a strong and mighty grin.
    Candy and little toys we hope to gain
    from this daring plan imagined in these little brains.
    BOOOOO!! We are greeted as a scary hand
    extends to our goodie sacks.
    The lights go black, we stagger back!!
    Screams explode, others jump!!
    Dogs howl and unfriendly things give us a bump.
    It’s Halloween! The voice screams as
    we dump out our goodie sacks and run.

    So keep the goodies and
    BOOOOOOOOO! To you!


  • ON HALLOWEEN

    The witches fly
    Across the sky,
    The owls go, "Who? Who? Who?"
    The black cats yowl
    And green ghosts howl,
    "Scary Halloween to you!"

    ~Nina Willis Walter~

  • HALLOWEEN MAGIC

    A bald-headed ghost
    Drank some witches' brew
    And on top of his head
    A strange thing grew.

    It was pointed and tall
    And black as a bat
    With stringy long hair
    Where his head was flat.

    The sad little ghost
    Didn't want any hair
    Or a black pointed hat
    So he said, "Witch beware!"
    Then he chanted some words
    With a spell-casting switch
    And gave Halloween Night
    A bald-headed witch!!

    ~Barbara M. Hales~

  • SHIVERS

    Bushes quiver
    where shadows lean,
    and not a sliver
    of moon is seen.

    Near the river
    some goblins (green)
    with a witch in front
    and a ghost in between

    Make me sh..i..vvvver,
    but I am keen
    about the shivers
    of Halloween.

    ~Aileen Fisher~

  • IT'S HALLOWEEN

    It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
    The moon is full and bright
    And we shall see what can't be seen
    On any other night.

    Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
    Grinning goblins fighting duels,
    Werewolves rising from their tombs,
    Witches on their magic brooms.

    In masks and gowns
    we haunt the street
    And knock on doors
    for trick or treat.

    Tonight we are
    the king and queen,
    For oh tonight
    it's Halloween!

    ~Jack Prelutsky~

  • Halloween is creepy full of scary sounds.
    Kids are roaming in the night with their costumes on.
    The moon is full high in the air,
    gleaming bright everywhere.
    Trample trample pat pat pat,
    while everyone goes through the night.
    Bags are full of candy,
    for the sweet tooth kids to eat.
    It is now getting late as the moon rises higher.
    Rubbing there eyes fast asleep,
    THAT IS HALLOWEEN

    ~Erin~

    Thanks for sending this great poem, Erin!

  • On a spooky Halloween night,
    When Goblins and witches come out to fight,
    When children go out to say "Trick or Treat",
    When goblins and witches and people meet.
    Around the town loud noises roar,
    And when you hear the sound,
    "Knocking" at your door.
    Should you open it?
    Should you be scared?
    Trick or Treaters are everywhere!
    But don't you worry,
    And don't you fright,
    Its only one day,
    One evening,
    Its Halloween Night!

    ~Atacia~

    P.S. I am thirteen years old, but I wrote this last year when I was twelve.

    Thanks for sending this great poem, Atacia!

  • DEVIL'S NIGHT

    Don't go out on Devil's Night.
    Stay in your bed and keep on the light.
    Little demons and ghouls have their fun all right,
    outside on the streets this Devil's Night.

    You don't want to know what mischief they cause.
    On Halloween Eve they run without pause,
    flying and laughing, and breaking the laws,
    you really don't want to see the mischief they've caused.

    Please heed my words, stay under the covers,
    and tell your friends and your sisters, and of course your brothers.
    Stay in bed, don't even peek through the shutters,
    'cause a goblin or ghost may spook you to stutters.

    Just wait until daybreak on Halloween Day,
    when you know all the ghouls and ghosts are away.
    They hate the daylight, "it's no fun," they say.
    So just please, please wait to Trick or Treat on Halloween Day.


    THE MONSTER WHO WAS MISUNDERSTOOD

    This is a tale of poor old Frank --
    Frank the monster, not Tom, Rich, or Hank.
    He was created by a scientist in a great house.
    A house on a mountain, much too big for a mouse.
    There in the basement, the docter toiled night and day,
    with the help of his friend Igor, who had little to say.
    Finally when all was assembled like a bike,
    a bolt of lightning gave dear Frank his new life.
    He sat up from the table where he laid for months,
    scratched his square head, and said "I'm ready for lunch!"
    He crashed through the door, and went into town,
    where he arrived at the diner and tried to sit down.
    But everyone screamed , and left their plates hot.
    Even the cooks ran away without their prized pots.
    So Frank could have nothing to quell his belly's rumble,
    not a burger, or fries, or even Apple Pie Crumble.
    He was almost in tears, and very, very sad,
    and walked into the streets where everyone went mad,
    and screamed in horror at Frank's sight.
    No one had seen such a thing in their life.
    Frank tried to explain, "I'm just hungry, that's all.
    I mean you no harm, even though I am tall."
    A little girl saw him where she sat on the corner,
    and thought, he's not so scary, infact he might be an orphan.
    So she walked up to Frank and tugged at his sleeve,
    and said, "My name is Cinthia, Cindy if you please."
    He said, "I'm just a little hungry, and don't know where I am."
    "That's O.K.," Cindy answered, and pulled out some ham--
    ham for a sandwich she was waiting to make,
    and she pulled out two slices of bread freshly baked.
    They sat on the corner to a half sandwich each,
    both happy, and smiling as a sunny day peach.

  • HALLOWEEN

    I 'M MAKING A WITICHES BREW,
    SLINGING THE ANIMALS FROM THE ZOO,
    A LITTLE GIRL YELLS, A COWS BELL,
    IT'S SO GOOD PLEASE DON'T TELL.
    A CATS CLAW THAT TASTES LIKE WAR,
    A CLINCH OF HAIR FROM THE TIDY LAW,
    A BUTTON FROM THE WIZARDS CLOAK,
    A COUPLE OF MUSCLES FROM THE WOMENS BLOKE,
    NOW ALL THESE MIXED TOGETHER,
    IT'LL SOON TASTE LIKE SHINY LEATHER.
    ALL I NEED TO MAKE IT MORE,
    SLING IN AN OLD APPLE CORE.
    AND NOW IT'S DONE, IT WEIGHS A TON.
    NOW OFF I GO WITH MY WITCHES BREW,
    DOWN THE STREET I'M COMING THROUGH,
    I'M GOING BY, THE BABIES CRY,
    I AM LOOKING AROUND TOO FIND THE WIZARD,
    TOO TURN HIM INTO A LONG GREEN LIZARD!!!!

  • On Halloween all that beams is a little yellow light.
    I go to school and on my way I see all gost and ghouls
    I wonder why these things are out and all are running about.
    It's not time for the trick or treaters to come, I wonder where their from?
    But when I looked all around the things that I saw were just heading to the school's ball.
    My my my oh what a scare. I wonder if all my friends will be there?

  • On Halloween all the monsters in sight are having a party tonight.
    Frankenstein and the misses will send you hugs and kisses.
    The party never ends, cause this is in your dreams.
    But if Halloween could have such a sight, would you still love Halloween night?

  • Here's a wide-eyed owl,
    With a pointed nose
    And claws for toes.
    He lives high in a tree.
    When he looks at you,
    He flaps his wings
    And says, "Whoo-whoo-whoo".

  • THE SCARECROW

    The farmer made a scarecrow
    And stuffed it full of straw.
    He put it in the cornfield,
    but the crows laughed,
    "Haw-caw-caw."
    One crow sat upon Scarecrow's hat.
    He was not scared at all.
    That scarecrow did not scare
    A single crow away all fall!

  • HENRY'S HALLOWEEN

    Lantern burning light
    Still the moon keeps shining bright
    Darkness comes to make it night
    Children given a fright

    Witches fly across the sky
    On a broomstick up, up high
    Black cat flying with the witch
    Wizard's Wand beginning to twitch

    'Trick or Treaters' playing tricks
    On those who didn't give them sweets
    Everyone is very scared
    The pumpkin has an evil glare

    Evil spirits fill the streets with bones
    The skeletons are in town!
    Ghosts keep the children awake
    ......Bats fly back to their cave.

  • HALLOWEEN POEM

    Oh no, not again, the time is near,
    It always happens at this time of year.
    The hissing of unlucky balck cat,
    And ovrhead all the screeching bats.
    When gone completely is the sun,
    The vampires come out to have some fun.
    Witches stir their cauldrons or grab onto a broom,
    Casting spells and cackling as they fly across the moon.
    Skeletons dance around shaking all their bones,
    Playing many stange toons on all their xylophones.
    Ghosts and goblins join the fun too,
    Running about and shouting out BOO!
    Jack-o-lanturns smailing and burning bright,
    Don't worry it's just another Halloween Night.

    Poem sent in by Jynx--thanks!

    Bats Are Sleeping

    Bats are sleeping
    Bats are sleeping
    Upside down
    Upside down
    Waiting for night to come
    Waiting for night to come
    Then they fly around
    Then they fly around


    Five Batty Bats

    Five batty bats
    Were hanging beneath the moon.

    "Quiet!" said the first.
    "The witch is coming soon."

    "She's green," said the second,
    "With a purple pointy nose."

    "Black boots," said the third,
    "Cover up her ugly toes."


    Three Little Ghosts

    Three little ghosts on Halloween night
    Saw a witch and freaked in fright
    The witch just laughed and shouted, "Boo!"
    One ghost ran home and then there were two.
    Two little ghosts who shiver and shook
    With every single step they took.
    When the door opened wide
    A goblin said to the other...
    I'm going home and stay with my mother.
    One little ghost can't have much fun,
    so he ran home, and then there were none.


    Three Little Witches

    One little, two little, three little witches
    Fly over haystacks and fly over ditches
    Fly over moonbeams without any hitches
    Hey, it's Halloween night.
    One little, two little, three little witches
    Fly over barb wire and tore their britches
    Had to go home and get some stitches
    Hey, it's Halloween night.


    Mr. Pumpkin
    (Tune: Where is Thumbkin)

    Mr. Pumpkin,
    Mr. Pumpkin,
    Round and fat,
    Round and fat.
    Harvest time is coming,
    Harvest time is coming.
    Yum, yum, yum.
    That is that!


    Pumpkin, Pumpkin

    Pumpkin, Pumpkin,
    Sitting on the wall.
    Pumpkin, Pumpkin,
    Tip and fall.
    Pumpkin, Pumpkin,
    Rolling down the street.
    Pumpkin, Pumpkin,
    Good to eat!


    Pumpkin Song
    (Tune: Have You Ever Seen A Lassie?)

    Have you ever seen
    a pumpkin, a pumpkin, a pumpkin,
    Have you ever seen
    a pumpkin that grows on a vine?
    A round one, a tall one,
    a bumpy one, a squashed one.
    Have you ever seen a pumpkin
    that grows on a vine?


    Ten Little Pumpkins
    (Tune: Ten Little Indians)

    One little,
    Two little,
    Three little pumpkins,
    Four little,
    Five little,
    Six little pumpkins,
    Seven little,
    Eight Little,
    Nine little pumpkins,
    Ten little pumpkins in the
    Pumpkin Patch!


    The Pumpkins Are Here
    (Tune The Farmer in the Dell)

    The pumpkins are here;
    The pumpkins are there.
    The pumpkins, the pumpkins
    are everywhere.

    The pumpkins are up;
    the pumpkins are down.
    The pumpkins, the pumpkins
    are all around.

    The pumpkins are in;
    the pumpkins are out.
    The pumpkins, the pumpkins
    are all about.

    The pumpkins are low;
    the pumpkins are high.
    The pumpkins, the pumpkins
    all say,"Goodbye!"


    Where is Pumpkin?
    (Tune: Where is Thumbkin?)

    Where is Pumpkin?
    Where is Pumpkin?
    Here it is!
    Here it is!
    This one has a happy face,
    This one has a scary face!
    Roll away!
    Roll away!

    Halloween, Halloween,
    Oh what funny things I've seen...
    Witches Hats,

    Mice and Bats!
