As witches and pirates roam the streets asking for different foods,
Read old Halloween stories to give it a different mood.
Tell frightening stories of old, when a campfire lit the night.
Or describe the horror of finding a body before the morning light.
The headless horseman and even monsters under the bed,
will make the bravest listen with dread.
These things are legends, their stories found in a book.
If you are wise, you'll crack open the pages and come take a look.
So make Halloween the day they'll remember with stories of the past.
For today is the day they let their minds roam, until reality returns them at last.
