Welcome to our main Halloween Verses Poems Quotes Page.

Follow the witch this Halloween, for the ghost and wraith may not be seen.
To a party at a house on a dark lonely street, good food you will have, good friends you will meet.
In costume you'll come, do not be late, we commence at the witching hour of eight.
Until this dark and fateful night, be ready to make haste when witches take flight

A Halloween party there's going to be,
And we want you there as sure as can be;
There'll be joy and laughter by the ton
Please say you will come and join the fun!


When stars shoot and owls hoot
And bats fly in and out,
When fire's blue and candles too,
Then witches are about!


O let Us cast Dull Care away
Again be Children for a Day
Witches Goblins have their sway
Tis Hallowe'en lets Joke and Play


An invitation from a friend
to you on Hallowe'en I send
May every jack o lantern bright
guide you to us this scared night

Bite you I might
But only at night.
I'll give you a fright.
If there is no daylight
I want my fangs in your neck.
I'll take your blood, but what the heck
I'll start real slow, just a tiny peck.
You'll never know your life's a wreck.
I want to do it. I'm on fire
Ooooh oooh
I want you now, your situation's dire.
But wait! Now it's gone, all my desire.
That's why I'm the Indecisive Vampire.
(cr pending,L.Landry)


A bald-headed ghost
Drank some witches' brew
And on top of his head
A strange thing grew.

It was pointed and tall
And black as a bat
With stringy long hair
Where his head was flat.

The sad little ghost
Didn't want any hair
Or a black pointed hat
So he said, "Witch beware!"
Then he chanted some words
With a spell-casting switch
And gave Halloween Night
A bald-headed witch!!
–Barbara M. Hales


Halloween, Halloween,
Oh what funny things I've seen…
Witches Hats,
Coal Black Cats,
Broom Stick Riders,
Mice and Bats!

Halloween Poems, Verses

Halloween, Halloween;
Lots of fun on Halloweens
Monsters and ghouls, goblins too;
Ghosts and witches all say Boo!

Ghosts and goblins, cats and bats,
We're not afraid of this or that.
They are only make-believe,
Funny costumes on Halloween.
Ghosts and goblins, cats and bats,
We're not afraid of this or that.

Double, double, toll and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Eye of newt, 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.
–William Shakespeare


There's a house upon the hilltop
We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.

Tonight they have their party,
All the lights are burning bright,
But oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.

The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about.
They sing their songs to Halloween.
"Come join the fun," they shout.

But we do not want to go there
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.

By Jack Prelutsky

Halloween Verses

The only Ghost I ever saw
Was dressed in Mechlin – so –
He wore no sandal on his foot –
And stepped like flakes of snow –

His Gait – was soundless, like the Bird –
But rapid – like the Roe –
His fashions, quaint, Mosaic –
Or haply, Mistletoe –

His conversation – seldom –
His laughter, like the Breeze –
That dies away in Dimples
Among the pensive Trees –

Our interview – was transient –
Of me, himself was shy —
And God forbid I look behind –
Since that appalling Day!

By Emily Dickinson


Some things are scary
Others are not,
Like ghosts and goblins,
And things that rot
