Every creature is stirring, including the ghosts.
The pumpkins are carved into a spooky sight
with candles to light up the eerie night.
The children are jumping up and down on their bed
While visions of candy corn dance in their head.
And I in my fairy wings and him in his cap
Know that by tomorrow we'll all need a long nap.
When darkness falls, in our costumes we'll go
up and down streets in the moon's soft glow.
We'll knock on the doors shouting "Trick or Treat"
'Til the bags have more candy than we can eat.
Then we'll skip back home and settle down
To watch The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
The children will crash from sugar highs
And be carried off to bed with sleepy eyes.
We'll gather up wings, tutus, and boots
Then raid the best chocolate from their loot.
And this brings an end to our fun and fright
Happy Halloween to all and to all a good night!
