Rhyming October 31

Spacemen and aliens
Werewolves and more
Supermen and heroes
Standing at my door
Ballerina dancers
Princess to the fore
Monster-faced romancers
Dripping evil gore
Trick them or treat them
Gather up my store
Rich in candy wrappers now
Tomorrow I’ll be poor.

Rhyming October 30

Shush. Can you hear it?
Look. Can you see it?
Sniff. Can you smell it?
Touch. Can you tell it’s
Coming nearer
Can you taste it
Tasting you?

The trick’s in the treating
In opening the door
When the season’s not play
And the raven’s still watching us
Waiting and saying
So softly still praying for mercy
For us evermore.

Candy's dandy
sweet is neat
shop till I drop
for handy Halloween treats.

The school bell rings
The kids go home
The lights go out
The school-ghosts roam

Once a pumpkin
Golden yellow
Shining eyes
A wondrous fellow
Walked along
The street and yelled
At children
Made them cry.
Once a pumpkin
Golden yellow
Met a dog.
The happy fellow
Chomped that pumpkin;
Let the kids go by.

Rhyming October 25

Did you hear the rain last night
The pitter patter
Rumbling roar
Like feet that clatter
Monsters breathing fire?
It didn’t rain last night.
