Halloween is a holiday that is celebrated annually on October 31st. It originated from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which was celebrated to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. Halloween is now a time for dressing up in costumes, carving pumpkins, and trick-or-treating. It’s also a time for spooky stories, haunted houses, and scary movies. Here are some short poems about Halloween that capture the spirit of this holiday.
Halloween night is dark and spooky,
Ghosts and goblins, tall and kooky,
Witches flying on their brooms,
Jack-o’-lanterns light up the rooms.
Trick or Treat
Trick or treat, smell my feet,
Give me something good to eat,
If you don’t, I don’t care,
I’ll just play a trick, beware!
The Witching Hour
The witching hour is drawing near,
Ghosts and goblins start to appear,
Black cats prowl and bats take flight,
Halloween is such a spooky night.
In the pumpkin patch so bright,
Jack-o’-lanterns shine at night,
Smiling faces, big and small,
Halloween is the best of all.
In the haunted house so old,
Ghosts and ghouls are very bold,
Creaky doors and floors that groan,
Halloween is such a fun tone.
Witches brew and cauldrons bubble,
Stirring up some midnight trouble.
Spells are cast, the air is thick,
Halloween magic, quick, quick, quick!
Black Cat’s Stroll
Black cat prowls, eyes so bright,
Slipping through the quiet night.
Crossing paths, a playful grin,
Halloween’s here, let’s begin!
The Enchanted Eve
On this enchanted Halloween eve,
Magic and mystery interweave.
Costumed creatures roam the streets,
In search of sugary, delightful treats.
Bats flutter and owls hoot high,
In the eerie, yet festive sky.
Celebrating until the night does cease,
Halloween brings a unique peace.
The Bewitched Library
On Halloween night, when the clock strikes twelve,
The bewitched library comes alive, all by itself.
Books flutter open, pages start to turn,
Tales of witches, ghosts, and goblins return.
In aisles and nooks, the stories unfold,
Adventures in magic, both new and old.
The characters dance, and spells are cast,
In the bewitched library, Halloween’s blast.
Garden of the Night
In the garden of the night, where the moonflowers bloom,
Whispers of Halloween softly loom.
Glowworms twinkle like distant stars,
Guiding the way, no matter how far.
Gnomes and fairies start to dance,
In this nocturnal, enchanted trance.
Halloween’s magic, tender and bright,
Illuminates the garden of the night.
Whispers in the Night
In the quiet of the night, whispers fill the air,
Ghosts and goblins emerge, giving quite a scare.
Jack-o’-lanterns grinning, with a fiery glow,
Guiding trick-or-treaters, as they go to and fro.
Bats flit through the sky, in a dance of delight,
While witches on broomsticks, take to the night.
A chill in the air, as the night unfolds,
Tales of hauntings and spooks, are what’s being told.
So dress in your costume, and join the parade,
For Halloween’s magic, will never fade.
With candy and laughter, and friends so dear,
Celebrate the season, year after year.
The moon is full, the sky is clear,
Halloween is finally here.
With costumes on, we take the street,
In hopes of many treats to eat.
The witches cackle, the vampires bite,
Ghosts and zombies roam the night.
Spooky shadows, eerie sounds,
Magic and mystery all around.
Pumpkins glowing, cats so black,
Beware the werewolves on attack.
Enjoy the night, have some fun,
Halloween’s here, the mischief’s begun.
The Haunted Melody
In the quiet of the old, abandoned hall,
A piano plays a haunting call.
Notes float through the chilly air,
A melody of mystery, if you dare.
Fingers unseen press the keys,
Telling tales of ghostly glee.
On Halloween, the song takes flight,
Filling the hall with eerie delight.
As October ends and leaves do fall,
Halloween arrives, for one and all.
With masks and capes and hats so tall,
We trick-or-treat until night does pall.
Spiders weave webs of silken thread,
While skeletons rise from their earthen bed.
Cauldrons bubble with potions dread,
And cackling witches are widely spread.
In the crisp air, we tell tall tales,
Of haunted houses and ghostly wails.
With every bump, our courage fails,
But in the end, fun prevails.
So let’s toast to the spooky season,
With candy corn and plenty of reason.
For on this night, let’s commit the treason,
Of scaring friends, all in good fun!
The Dance of the Jack-o’-Lanterns
In the heart of the autumn, under twilight’s embrace,
The jack-o’-lanterns awaken with a glowing face.
Carved with care, their smiles wide and bright,
They dance in the dark, bringing light to the night.
With candles flickering, a warm, golden hue,
They tell tales of old and some that are new.
Whispering secrets of the Halloween lore,
They celebrate the season with a soft, gentle roar.
Children in costumes, from door to door they go,
Seeking sweet treats and the jack-o’-lantern’s glow.
With laughter and joy, the night is alive,
In the magical dance, the Halloween vibe.
So let the pumpkins shine, with their fiery grin,
As we celebrate the season, and let the fun begin.
With tricks and treats, and stories to share,
The dance of the jack-o’-lanterns is beyond compare.
The night is still, the air is crisp,
Halloween’s serenade is not to be missed.
With howls and hoots, and cackles so wild,
The night is serenaded, like a lullaby child.
Skeletons rattle, as they join the song,
Dancing and swaying, all night long.
Ghosts join in, with a soft, ethereal hum,
Floating and gliding, they sing and they strum.
The witches cackle, adding to the tune,
Underneath the glow of the silvery moon.
Their broomsticks soar, as they sing with glee,
Celebrating the night, wild and free.
So listen closely, to Halloween’s song,
With its notes of magic, where we all belong.
With a melody of mystery, and a rhythm of fun,
Halloween’s serenade has only just begun.
