At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.

When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.

And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,

Men say that in this midnight hour,
The disembodièd have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By wizard oak and fairy stream.
A gypsy fire is on the hearth,
Sign of the carnival of mirth;
Through the dun fields and from the glade
Flash merry folk in masquerade,
For this is Hallowe'en!
Of calling shapes, and beck'ning shadows dire,
And airy tongues that syllable men's names.
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about but few have seen. ~Author Unknown
Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!

You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.
On Halloween, witches come true;
Wild ghosts escape from dreams.
Each monster dances in the park....
A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises. Ghosts were created when the first man awoke in the night. ~J.M. Barrie
May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you.
Proof of our society's decline is that Halloween has become a broad daylight event for many. ~Robert Kirby
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
Hobgoblins know the proper way to dance:
Arms akimbo, loopy legs askew,
Leaping into darkness with delight,
Lusting for the ecstasy of fright,
Open to the charm of horrors new....
~Nicholas Gordon, poemsforfree.com
Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve.... And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon. ~Kim Elizabeth
