On Halloween by Elisabeth Weaver Winstead

Green goblins come on Halloween,
Gray bats and black cats, too.
Hoot owls with flaming red hoot eyes
That look you through and through.

Spooks and trolls creep out of holes
And dance around their queen.
Jack-o-lantern laughs out loud
On the night of Halloween.

Mysterious figures rush about,
Then disappear from view.
Suddenly they dash right out
To shout a loud, "Guess who!"

Trick-or-treaters on the street
For this night have the freedom
To whoop and holler gathering treats,
Then drag them home and eat 'em.
