The moon that hangs high in the sky
casts an eerie light,
on scurrying shapes, all sizes and forms
that hurry through the night.
Rustling leaves kicked off the stairs -
there's someone lurking there.
Behind a curtain peeks a face
"Come up here, - if you dare!
I've candy, gum and pretzels
for good little boys and girlies,
but first you must get past my door
of sounds that are blood curling!"
First one, then two and then a third
climb the rickety stairs,
and fumble for the doorbell, where -
a spider suddenly appears.
A hideous laughter rings out clear
then a bony hand extends -
that holds a caldron full of bags -
the prizes that it tends.
"Trick or treat", the brave ones call -
"Trick or treat", as the door opens wide -
and then, they see, it's not a witch
but a costumed Mom inside.
