Tonight is the night when dead leaves fly
Like witches on switches across the sky
When elf and sprite flit through the night
On a moony sheen.
Tonight is the night when leaves make a sound
Like a gnome in his home under the ground
When spooks and trolls creep out of holes
Mossy and green.
Tonight is the night when pumpkins stare
Through sheaves and leaves everywhere
When ghoul and ghost and goblin host
Dance round their queen.

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night!
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls
Grinning goblins fighting duels
Werewolves rising from their tombs
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat
Tonight we are the king and queen
For oh tonight it's Halloween!
by Jack Prelutsky
There's a goblin at my window,
A monster by my door.
The pumpkin at my table,
Keeps on smiling more and more.
There's a ghost who haunts my bedroom,
A witch whose face is green.
They used to be my family,
Till they dressed for Halloween.
