(8-6 Meter Quatrains)
Enchanted brooms may twitch
With wicked spells from local witch.
It is a pretty safe-made bet,
You will see her silhouette
Sailing across the moon.
So listen for that cackling tune.
Now it is time to grab your gear.
You’ve been waiting all year.
Your satchel’s set for holding loot.
Get out that costume suit.
It’s time for you to roam,
To trick or treat at every home.
There’s lots of candy to be had,
While chaperoned by mom or dad.
Those spooks are merely fun.
There’s treats and sweets for everyone.
