Boo Poems

I found these poems around the web. None were credited with authors. Of course you can be creative and make up your own!

Poem #1

The air is cool, the season fall,

Soon Halloween will come to all.

Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore...

Tricky witches at your door.

The spooks are after things to do,

In fact a spook brought this "Boo" to you!

The excitement comes when friends like you,

Copy this note and make it two.

We'll all have smiles upon our faces,

No one will know who "BOO"ed who's places!

Just two short days to work your spell,

Keep it secret, hide it well.

Please join the fun, the seasons here .

Just spread these "BOO's" and Halloween cheer.

Poem #2

The air is cool the season fall

Soon Halloween will come to all

The spooks are after things to do

In fact, a spook brought this to you

"BOO" is a shield from witching hour

Just hang it up and watch its power

On your front door is where it works

It wards off spooks and scary jerks

The treats that came with crypted note

Are yours to keep, enjoy them both

The power comes when friends like you

Will copy this and make it TWO

Then others here among our friends

Will give warm fuzzies that do not end

We'll all have smiles upon our faces

No one will know who "BOO"ed whose places

Just one short day to work your spell

Or a big ZAP will strike your tail

And don't forget a nifty treat,

Like something cute or something sweet

Please join fun, let's really hear it

And spread some "BOO"s and Halloween spirit

Poem #3

This treat is for you, we hope you enjoy.

The idea is simple, one we hope you employ.

You pass "BOO" along to two other neighbors.

Along with any kind of Halloween favors.

If we all do our part, and spread the good cheer,

By Halloween night it will be very clear,

We're a friendly bunch, we like to share fun

So please do your part to keep "BOO" on the run!

Poem #4

Since this is the time for goblins and bats

Halloween spirits and ghosts and cats

Happenings are weird and witches make brew

The following are the things I wish for you.

May the only spirit you chance to meet

Be thee spirit of love and friends that are sweet.

May the only goblin that comes your way

Be the neighborhood phantom, the breeze takes away.

So by tomorrow, pick a friend down the street

And give to them a Halloween treat.

Fill this cone with goodies galore,

Then hang it on their front door.

You only have one day to do this, so hurry

Leave treats on their door and run in a flurry

As this cone moves along from friend to friend,

All good wishes go on and never end

I think that this activity is no better than those awful email spams that people send in the email. You put it on peoples doors and people feel obligated to go out and but a treat or spend a lot of time making something. Some people may not want to participate in this activity and I think it is rude to force it on these people. Find an activity that people you know can all decide whether or not they want to particpate please.
