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
