Halloween Poems

Pumpkin faces

Again it's time for pumkin faces
Flying witches, scary places
Ghosts and goblins howl at you
And I'm here with a Boo or two!

Halloween night

Lock you doors
And turn out the lights
Or ghosts and goblins
Will spook you with fright
Jump in bed
Then pull the covers up tight
Close your eyes
Until the morning is light.

Strange Creatures

The night is dark
And the goblins are out
And the witches and black cats
Are prowling about
And costumed creatures
The strangest I've seen
Cause tonight's Halloween.


Spiders are scary
Skeletons too
Witches and ghosts
Will fly around you
Goblins and goons
And even some geeks
Will be everywhere
During Halloween week
So beware of the demons
That might come your way
But have a good time
On Halloween day!

Friendly Ghosts

When you go out on Halloween
Many ghosts will follow you
Don't worry for they'll do no harm
With just a boo or two
Make sure you don't upset them
Be careful what you say
These friendly ghosts will walk with you
To scare the beasts away
The monsters won't attack you
When ghosts are by your side
Don't think of it, you won't be hit
By broomsticks witches ride
So you'll be safe to trick or treat
Though danger dims the stars
So thank your ghosts, and here's a hint:
They all like chocolate bars!


When witches go riding
And black cats are seen
The moon laughs and whispers
'Tis near Halloween.

The New Broom

Oh dear, you caught me flying
This is my new broom
Got it at the dime store
Last one I presume
I took it on a test run
You'll be so shocked to hear
Been flying on it endlessly
About 100 years
I wish that I could land it
My flying miles are done
I need a place to settle down
For me this ain't no fun
Any way I'm here now
So I just want to say
I wonder could you tell me
Is it Halloween today?

I am not afraid

It's Halloween
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
An any other night
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls
Grinning goblins fighting duels
Werewolves rising from their tombs
And witches on their magic brooms
I take my lantern
Because it is late
Don't think for a minute
That I am afraid!

The house

There's a house upon the hilltop
We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live
Where ghosts and goblins hide
Tonight they have their party
All the lights are burning bright
But oh we will not go inside
The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about
They sing their songs to Halloween
"Come join the fun!" they shout
But we do not want to go there
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight!


Grab your costume
Either sweet or scary
All are welcome
Every witch and fairy
Grab your brooms
The bats are all about
Strut your style
'Cause it's ghouls night out!


We mask our faces
And wear strange hats
And moan like witches
And screech like cats
We jump like goblins
And thump like elves
And almost manage
To scare ourselves!

The Goblin

There's a goblin as green
As a goblin can be
Who is sitting outside
And is waiting for me
When he knocked on my door
And said softly "Come play!"
I answered "No thank you,
now please,go away"
But the goblin as green
As a goblin can be
Is still sitting outside
And is waiting for me.


Here you are, dresses up for the night
You knock and knock, hoping to fright
Instead I am dressed up too
I give you a fright when I yell BOO!

It is time to fear

Halloween time is finally here
So all you scaredy cats
It is time to fear
For all the devil spirits
And witches are now near
You can run...
But you cannot hide, my dear!

If you were

Happy Halloween to you
Get ready to wear a costume new
Be what you desire
A cat or a vampire
Have a rocking time
And ring like the chime.
