Goblins, witches,

Frankenstein monsters

Sing a happy

Halloween song


Little children

Up and down the street

Ring the doorbell

Saying trick or treat


Leaves are blowing

Soon it’s snowing

Turkey, stuffing

Pumpkin pie


Lights a twinkling

Hallowed evening

Starry skies

Sleigh bell rides


Tis the season

Of believing

Counting moments

Hopeful eyes


First come costumes

Trick or treating

Crisp October

Night of fright
