~ Here is our small but growing collection of Halloween Poems & Sayings. We hope you enjoy them! ~

By Harry Behn

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
When ghouls and ghost 
And goblin host
Dance round their queen.
It's Halloween.

Happy Halloween
~ FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS SITTING ON A GATE ~ Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, The first one said, "Oh my, it's getting late." The second one said, "But we don't care." The third one said, "I see witches in the air." The fourth one said, "Let's run, and run, and run." The fifth one said, "Get ready for some fun." Then whoosh went the wind, and out went the lights, And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight! ~ HOW TO MEET A WITCH ~ First, put your clothes on inside out. Then walk backward to where two roads meet. If you wait until midnight, you will see a witch!

~ WALK INTO MY PARLOR ~ by Mary Howitt "Will you walk into my parlor?" said the spider to the fly; "Tis the prettiest little parlor that you ever did spy. The way into my parlor is up a winding stair, And I have many curious things to show when you are there." "Oh no, no!" said the little fly, "to ask me is in vain; For who goes up your winding stair can never come down again." ~ THREE LITTLE GHOSTESSES ~ Three little ghostesses Sitting on postesses, Eating buttered toastesses, Greasing their fistesse, Up to their wristesses, Oh, what beastesses To make sch feastesse!
Happy Halloween
