  • Cathi writes, "This isn't my original Halloween poem, but one my mom sung to me from the time I was a little girl (I'm 45 now) until last year. Mom passed away last November, so I'm going to miss it for the first time in my life, but I thought that if you printed it here, a piece of her would live on, this Halloween. Here goes: "

    Jack-o-lantern pumpkin head
    He is a fearful sight.
    If I were you, I'd be afraid
    To meet him in the night.
    By day he is a pumpkin,
    But just you wait 'til night.
    When out of eyes and nose and mouth
    There shines a yellow light.

    "Mom probably learned this in elementary school in the '30's and I have no idea where it originally came from. Thanks for letting me share..."

  • Gracie sent me two little poems--thanks!:

    Ghosts and Goblins Vampires to!

    Everyone likes Halloween!
    Even me!


    Sometimes I like to walk in the dark!
    I like to shout and scream!

  • Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
    The first one said, "Oh my, it's getting late"
    The second one said, "There are witches in the air"
    The third one said,"But we don't care!"
    The fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run"
    The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
    Wooooo, went the wind
    And out went the light
    And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

    Sent in by Alva--thanks!

  • Happy Halloween

    The air is crisp and leaves are falling,
    It s almost time to go ghost calling
    We must make our jack-o-lanterns to help light the way,
    so we won't get lost on Halloween day.
    Find the biggest you can I dare you to try,
    Clean out his insides and give him some eyes.
    Big ones, small ones he doesn't mind,
    just make sure his light will shine.
    Give him a nose long and thin,
    short and fat he might like that.
    Whatever you choose I'm sure he will agree,
    he is the best looking pumpkin on the street.

  • On All Hallows Eve, strange things start to happen.
    The moon glows red, and the wind shreiks.
    The ground starts to quake, and witches dwell the streets.

    Horses gallop, but the rider has no head.
    Without a doubt, It's HALLOWEEN!

    ~Alexandra~

  • Ben went to the graveyard
    One dark and lonely night,
    He didn't know then
    that the halloween dare
    Would result in a spine chilling fright!

    The moon was full,
    Full as a balloon,
    Oh what a creepy moon!

    Ben heard breathing behind his ear,
    Fear flooded through his brain,
    Was it a zombie a ghost?
    It practically drove him insane!

    The breathing got louder,
    Ben turned around and closed his eyes,
    something wet slopped down his leg..
    something wet like a hog!
    he opened his eyes to see.......
    That it was only his pet dog!!!!

    ~Christina~

  • HALLOWEEN

    Ghost, Goblins and Witches
    And scary little twitches
    Dark skies, dead flies, loud cries
    Scary costumes, what a fright
    Fill this Halloween night
    But these terrifying things make it handy
    To get lots of different kinds of candy
    I go to the door and say trick or treat
    Can't wait to get home and eat, eat, eat.

    ~April- 9 years old~

  • Holloween Night

    Holloween Night is such a fright
    Ghosts and Goblins are really a sight
    The witches stir brew
    The goblins they drool
    The bats fly high up in the sky
    While the children all laugh
    watching the costumes they pass
    As they knock at the doors
    They say Trick or Treat
    Only in hopes for a really sweet treat
    Holloween night is such a fright

  • Halloween's coming, are you ready for the fright
    Goblins and ghouls come out at night
    Witches and warlocks are ready to scare
    Skeletons dancing without a care

    Devils come out to settle their craves
    Zombies are popping out of their graves
    Little black bats are flying around
    Roaches are crawling not making a sound

    So many creatures
    All over the place
    I'm so scared
    To home I must race

    ~Francia~

    Apples everywhere-some are old.

    Lollipops falling to the ground.

    Evil eyes stare in every corner.
    Never go out at midnight

  • Put on your costume.
    Zig! Zag! Zoom!
    It's Halloween night
    When the mummies leave their tomb.

    The goblins come down
    From Halloween town.
    Everyone is frightened
    As they run all around.

    Go out if you dare.
    It's a haunted house out there!
    But you'll get lots of treats,
    Or even a S-C-A-R-E!!!!

    ~Emma, 6~

  • On Halloween Night,
    When there's a smoky, Harvest moon,
    I'm out trick-or-treating
    With the witches and a goon.

    Everyone's in costume
    From goblins to bumblebees.
    I'm so scared, I'm shaking
    From those spooky looking trees!

    The houses---decorated.
    The jack-o-lanterns---glowing.
    Everything is silent
    And the cool, crisp wind is blowing.

    I'm about to knock on
    The haunted house's door
    When suddenly I turn around
    And hear a monster roar!

    I see some strange lights
    Quickly being shined.
    I rubbed my eyes.....Is it real
    Or is it just my mind?

    Later that night, I came home.
    My basket was a treat!
    All I did through that whole night
    Was eat, eat, eat, eat, EAT!

    The evening passed so quickly,
    Does it not seem?
    I can't wait for next year's
    SPOOKY HALLOWEEN!!

    ~Victoria, 9~

  • Green cats eyes
    in midnight gloom
    fly with the witch
    on her ragged broom
    over dark hills where
    bonfires loom.

  • pumpkins
    pumpkins
    round and ovel
    oronge and red
    like an apple

    ~Jeremiah~

  • Lori writes, "I made this up to go w/ our Pumpkin Patch fieldtrip & our Science Changes Unit"

    (On Top of Spaghetti)
    Down in the ground, all covered with dirt,
    My pumpkin seed is buried safe, where it can't be hurt.
    It cracked open; the vines pushed into the air,
    And now all the vines are stretching everywhere.
    They grab with their curls and snake across the ground,
    And if you look carefully, the buds of flowers can be found.
    The buds begin growing and soon flowers appear,
    Making a burst of yellow color that makes us come near.
    A baby pumpkin all colored in green,
    Gets bigger each day to change to orange as we've seen.
    Now it's up to you; choose what you want to do,
    You can carve it into a jack-o-lantern, or plant it's seeds for more new pumpkins too.

  • Once a Halloween witch
    Wanted to be filthy rich
    Selling candy corn that makes creatures groan
    And pumpkin pie makes goblins moan.

    ~Zach~

  • ooooo!! scary owl! who who
    its stares at me
    with big yellow eyes

    and the wizard fixes his braid

  • Halloween friend

    One halloween night a few years ago, I laid awake in bed. For I heard a sound in the closet, and didn't know what to do. When I checked the closet to see a scare, a little ghost was stading there. He seemed friendly for I wasn't sure. He said his name was halloween friend. Mom and dad were asleep, so we went to trick or treat. But when the clock struck twelve, he had to leave. Then he said, "I'll come back next halloween.

    ~Lexa~

  • you say boo, the ghost says boo, we all say boo

    ~Chloe~

  • Here and there
    What's over there?
    There three witches,
    But which witch is which?

    ~Fran~

  • I like Halloween it reminds me of cheese
    and I love cheese.
    there was a wizard passing me
    with a long grey beard
    I always wanted a beard like that
    so I tried to get it
    luckily it was just a costume
    so I kept the beard and got candy

  • Halloween Night

    Scary, eerie, horrifying, fright,
    This comes up on Halloween night ,
    Witches, ghouls, goblins and ghosts,
    Getting scares from our Halloween hosts.

    Popcorn balls and candy peaches,
    All we hear are screams and screeches,
    Candy bags are full of sweets,
    The people give out lots of treats.

    There's a haunted house on Willow street,
    Who knows what vengeful ghouls we'll meet,
    I hope your Halloween is lots of fun,
    The fright of the night has only just begun.
