Halloween Poems

Spooky Poems For Halloween

Halloween began as a holiday for individuals who practiced the occult. It has since turned into something completely different. Halloween is about the fun of dressing up and pretending to be someone else for a night. Trick-or-treating and children gorging themselves on way too much candy. Attending costume parties and the thrill of a good scare. Carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns and decorating homes. Halloween has become a celebration of Autumn. There may also be a sinister aspect to the holiday when children believing they are entitled to receive candy vandalize property.

    Against the black void, looms the lunar sphere.
    Hungry ghosts haunt, satisfied by fright.

    October Days And Autumn Love

    When days grow short and nights get cold
    And autumn trees turn red and gold,
