scared at night with a huge fright. you need light in spight or do you like the fright in the night
When the liitle cats crawl and the liitle witches fly just go trick-or treat and just remeber that the costumes are fake and you are real!!
A witch on a broom
Can only spell DOOM!
Death is near soon
And that's quite a gloom!
The night was dark, the skies were gray when the jack-o-lanterns got up to play, they ran and rolled and played Hide-and-seek and at daylight went back to sleep.
Twas the night before Halloween
And all across the land
people were putting pumkins out to ward off evil spirits.
Some had carved faces
Others had none.
Twas the sign we all used till the evil had gone.
A darkness covered the land
And silence began to follow
As the people prepared for the next night of sorrow.
The moon and the stars were so clear in the sky
So at least we could see the witches fly by.
Children were frightened and scared of the day
When the evil dark witches could take them away.
More than two thousand years ago
A Celebration for the Dead, Returning
The Night before the Celtic New Year
With Costumes and Sacrificial Burning.
With a Celebration of the Harvest
And to Honor one’s Dead Ancestry
It spread across all of Europe
In the Seventh Century.
“All Hallows Eve”, “Night Of The Dead”
“All Souls Day”, for the Christians
Nobody really knows for sure
Where each of those Beliefs begins.
The first lighted fruit was gourds and turnips
With Scary Faces carved, embers inside
To ward off all of the Evil Spirits
Who roamed the streets and countryside.
The Irish brought America this Tradition
Of carving turnips and even potatoes
But quickly learned Pumpkins were better
Being bigger, wherein the garden it grows.
Bobbing for apples once was popular
Dating back to ancient Roman days
To honor Pomona, Goddess of fruits
As just one of their many Holidays.
“Trick Or Treat” was for the Spirits
To leave them a “Treat” outside your door
If not they would play “Tricks” on you
With all kinds of Evil held in store.
All Cats were thought of as Spiritual
But the Black Cat was the very worst
Some thought them Incarnated Humans
And many felt that they were Cursed.
Beeswax candles were colored “Orange”
And “Black” draped Caskets were the way
Colors for those Masses for the Dead
Back there in that Ancient day.
“Fires” where Druids Sacrificed life
Burned to the skeletal “bone”
Formed what we now call “bonfires”
A “new” word we thought we’ve always known.
Worshipers danced ‘round those fires
Wearing disguises on head and skin
And throughout the years Halloween
Has become steeped in Paganism.
And today we spend fourteen billion
And most people don’t even know, “Why?”
Except for all those Ghosts and Goblins
And fake Witches flying ‘cross the Sky.

hoohoo hoohoo owls in the tree
meow meow cats in the streets
children in their costumes jumping up and down
in this one spooky town
knock knock at the door
BOO! a ghost at your door only to say trick or treat to you.
ghost , goblins
spooking , treating , tricking
we all hunt tonight.
It's halloween night,
don't be scared,it's all right
the light of the moon will
l be bright.
At this time there are no witches on our sight!!!!!!
Hot and cold,
Your fill of mould,
Lollies in your tummies,
You wont be able to eat your tea,
Lollies in your bed,
Lollies in your ted,
Dont eat them all,
Yuo might need to call,
The dentist or,
Witchs and Warlocks come out at night
Beware be careful, they'll give you a fright
Whispers of the dead crawl up your spine
Skeletons dangle on the claws of a pine
Your muscles tense and your blood runs cold
The clock chimes twelve and secrets unfold
Never has there been such a night of scare
For Hallow's Eve is very, very rare
A pinch of this and a pinch of that,
Maybe even some boiled slugs fat!
I'll cook you up a feast tonight,
When you eat it you'll jump with delight!
I'll throw in a wolf's tail,
And even a hot cooked snail.
In go some human faces,
Just for this soup I killed out a whole species.
Stir it around once or twice,
Then I'll add in some hot peppery spice.
I'll serve you up this gruesome soup,
Don't be afraid I'll only give you a scoop.
An eye of a rat and heart of a bear,
Toe of a frog and two strands of my hair.
Tail of a mouse, Slice of veal,
You'll be dying to eat this meal!
Trick - or - treat
See the BIG smile
on my face,
Eating lots of candy
written by Ashley DiEsposti
Halloween is here
Death awaits you
Lock your doors
Shut your windows
Dreadful monsters have come
To eat you.
I don't know where they came from
But Halloween is here
So be aware.

October Night Hallows Eve
October night is what I like with all my might. The reason why I like this is, What seems to be a fright,
that so big it comes each year on the 31st which seems the first day of All Hallows Eve!
So be witching skies romes away into the mist of trickery and fun.
All trick or treater dwellers be careful of what you witch for, for this is what you yearn for,
go ahead but bewitching hours started! Candy apples is whats the reward of facing this dark Hallows Eve
so don't forget to brush your teeth! After you eat this tasty treat!!!
