The witches fly
Across the sky,
The owls go, "Who? Who? Who?"
The black cats yowl And green ghosts howl,
Scary Halloween to you!

Eye of new, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boi and bubble.
William Shakespeare in Macbeth

We'll frighten everyone in sight
Such pranks for ince,are justified
And fun and frolic amplified.

Make you nervous and fill you with fear,
Tie two horseshoes with a lovers knot,
And think of one that’s most dear.

on high
She'll tell you that
your love is nigh
Your fortune on Hallowe'en
when told
My secret will the witch unfold.
a 19th Century Hallowe'en Postcard

What fearful shapes and shadows beset his path, amidst the dim and ghastly glare of a snowy night! With what wistful look did he eye every trembling ray of light streaming across the waste fields from some distant window! How often was he appalled by some shrub covered with snow, which, like a sheeted spectre, beset his very path! How often did he shrink with curdling awe at the sound of his own steps on the frosty crust beneath his feet; and dread to look over his shoulder, lest he should behold some uncouth being tramping close behind him! and how often was he thrown into complete dismay by some rushing blast, howling among the trees, in the idea that it was the Galloping Hessian on one of his nightly scourings!
Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleep Hollow

Shadows of a thousand years
rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees,
"Tonight is Halloween!"
Dexter Kozen

By the pricking of my thumbs
Something wicked this way comes.
William Shakespeare

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes

Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble
William Shakespeare

Tis the night - the night
Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they - it is they
Arthur Cleveland Coxe

One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.
Emily Dickinson

At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.
Theodosia Garrison

Outside the ring of dancing warriors with spears and axes stood wolves at a respectful distance, watching and waiting.

Just like a ghost,
you've been a-hauntin' my dreams,
So I'll propose on Halloween.
Love is kinda crazy
with a spooky little girl like you.
Classics IV

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
William Shakespeare

Halloween Humor Epitaphs on Tombstones

Come blooming youths, as you pass by , And on these lines do cast an eye. As you are now, so once was I; As I am now, so must you be; Prepare for death and follow me

Beneath this stone, a lump of clay lies
Who on the twenty-fourth of May
Began to hold her tongue

Nothing on Earth (is) so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night.
Steve Almond

It's strange, because I remember the biggest point of my childhood was one Halloween when I was trick or treating and ended up at Henry Winkler's house and he answered the door. So I got to meet The Fonz. That was cool.
Brian Austin Green

Halloween Poem for children

Let the Children Be

'Twas Halloween night and all through the sky,

The clouds hid the moon as the bats glided by.

I was dressed all in white in my mama's old sheet,

Walking with friends down the ghost-haunted street.

All the kids were dressed in bright costumed array,

While flashlights and street lights guided our way.

We giggled and laughed as we hurried to each door,

Ringing or knocking, then laughing some more.

There were pumpkins aglow and skeletons dangling,

Scarecrows and shadows and silver chains clanging.

Grownups in masked faces opened doors in greeting,

As we stood with our bags and waited for treating.

Some people say that we should not have this night,

That too many kids are harmed by the sights or the fright -

But it's the one time a year when we can pretend to be

Someone else for a while, not you - not even me.

Let them celebrate now, as the bats glide on by,

For childhood is brief, like the blink of an eye.

Listen to their laughter and let the children be

Someone else for a while, not you and not even me.

Judith A. Lindberg
