Halloween Lights Are On



Cool wind creeps down,
Tree leaves frown,
Halloween lights are on,
Ghosts float all over the town.
.
Far down the street,
Houses smell bloody sweet.
Kids cannot wait
to do their favorite trick-treat.
.
If you dare,
Put on your custom and visit somewhere.
If you care,
Buy enough candies and share.
.
When parents lead their spooky kids here,
Greet them with No fear.
After the knocks at your door die,
Enjoy some bloody pumpkin pie.

Jingle, that was more sweet that scary (yes pun intended), but I did notice you threw in some 'bloody' and that stamped it Halloween for me. :))

That is a wonderful poem filled with spirit and an invitation to share the fun.
