And of course Eric the Crow has to be included
Ghosties and ghoulies, and things that are grimy
Bugs that go splat and slugs that are slimy
There’s beetles and snails sliding over your hand,
leaving slime on your nails trapping bugs that land.
Then there are spiders which lurk in dark places
with black beady eyes trying to see where your face is.
They’ll tickle your nose and then tickle your ear
then scuttle away while you tremble with fear.
What was that noise??
It came from the tree
Oh it’s only a black cat
but then could it be
A witch in a black hat
coming for tea?
What’s that noise?
it’s the winds ghostly voices.
What was the crash?
oh it’s only a bin.
Or was it a ghoulie
trying to get in?
What is that howling?
Sigh… it’s next doors dog
He hasn’t been fed yet.
He’s eating a log!!
Stop who goes there
with those great big eyes
So fiery and yellow, horrible but wise
It’s only an owl in the old oak tree
He’s watching us all including me.
He’s enjoying the party on this Halloween.
Have a happy, safe Halloween
A HALLOWEEN CREEPY TALE
I’m hiding here under the bedcovers,
Frightened and frozen with fear.
Whose is the withered hand?
Knobby and gnarled
with dagger shaped nails.
What is the strange noise?
The heavy breathing,
there’s someone lurking there.
What’s the shadow on the landing?
I can hear voices, whisperings, noises.
There’s the darkness. Now…
Something is grasping,
Twisting the door handle,
The door handles turns and creaks
now footsteps getting closer
They’re coming in!
They’re coming round
The horrible fingers grip the edge of the door
The slowly, creakingly door opens,
There is a horrible dark shadow looming over me,
I’m shaking with fear under the covers…
And the monster that came in speaks…
It says…it says
‘ You should be fast asleep by now.
It’s the end of Halloween
