Halloweens Past

Take a trip or two

Around the pumpkin patch

And be transported to tales

Of Halloweens past


When old-fashioned stories

Were filled with ghouls

Who haunted the village

Carrying farming tools


When apples were picked

From skeletal trees

And dipped in hot caramel

To warm the breeze


Where scarecrows stood watch

Not just over the corn

Their coal-fired eyes

Watched the children with scorn


It was a time when the children

All tucked in their beds

Would ooh and aah

At the ghost stories read


And when sleep would fall

On their bellies full of sweets

Wandering eyes and sniffling noses

Barely peeked from thin bed sheets
