 Trick-Or-Treat Haunt


Witches, bats, black cats and ghouls

Wizards wielding magic tools

Costumed kids with evil faces

Beg for candy in haunted places

In moonlit graveyards worldwide

Among the bushes monsters hide

Witches stir their ghastly potion

Dark of night shows ghosts in motion

Within the woods lurk screaching cats

Hungry vampires disguised as bats

Skeleton bones hung down from trees

Make eerie music on the breeze

Unknown spirits rise from their tombs

While witches fly on magic brooms

Wolfen howls rip through the night

Mummys stalk in pale moonlight

Jack-o-lanterns with scary faces

Are set to light some shadowed spaces

There's no safety in those glowing eyes

They will dark their candles, to hear your cries

As children search for candy treats

Scary sounds fill haunted streets

They sense the evil of this night

Avoiding monsters, averting fright

Later as kids fall asleep

Into their room goblins will creep

And steal some candies from their sack

Then sneak away, not looking back

So trick-or-treaters do beware

And approach this night with special care

For monsters own those hallowed streets

And just may steal your bag of treats

Very well done Sherry as always. I love Halloween and enjoy all the aspects of it as most can tell you who do come my my house and see the effort I put into decorating...but it is all worth it to know that it makes such great memories for the children, the same memories we look back on with such happiness.

Good write, Sherry, even though I personally don't celebrate Hallowe'en. Any holiday that takes precedence over Christmas or Thanksgiving ceases to exist in my eyes. :)

((((HUGS)))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
