Hallowe'en Night

Goblins on the doorstep,
By phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gatepost,
Giving stare to stare,
Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirring round of fate-cakes,
With a solemn spoon,
Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
up and down the streets,
Jack-o-lantern's grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter,
This is Hallowe'en
