Halloween, "All Hallows'Eve", observed and revered at October's ending,
Religious in reverence to the saints, departed, this opinion is still pending.
Carving of pumpkins, Jack-o-lanterns, bobbing for apples, trick-or-treating,
Happy children with joyful faces, with the chilly breezes, time is so fleeting.
Costume parties galore, much candy in store, as entire blocks all celebrate,
While ghosts and goblins fly through the night, such horror all's to anticipate.
Haunted houses, "Haints" everywhere, as groups of kids march door to door,
Yelling "Trick-or treat", each house to greet, hosts not knowing what's in store.
Halloween is such a colorful scene, a time every child always looks forward to,
As all moms, dads watch after their own, a celebration by each family to pursue.
Trips in the car, seeing fields of corn stalks, Orange pumpkins siting all in a row,
Such a fitting end to October, once again, Halloween time, we all enjoy you so.
