Boo!

Tonight, this night, All Hallows Eve

After children take a rest

from candies and such

(They can’t get enough!)

And from things that are best left unsaid

The ghosts and ghouls come out to play

The witches too I’m told

What they do I cannot say

For fear my heart does hold

 

Tonight, this night, All Hallows Eve

All mortal men take care

For spectres call

(And walk through walls!)

And goblins seek their share

They growl and cackle, moan and shriek

Till midnight comes a blast

And then the saints come marching in

To vouchsafe the world at last.
