One of my favorite halloween poems

This is Halloween. By Dorothy Brown Thompson

Goblins on the doorstep, Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gateposts Giving stare for stare,
Cats on flying broomsticks, Bats against the moon,
Stirrings round of fate-cakes With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings, Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing, Up and down the streets,
Jack-o'-lanterns grinning, Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter This is Halloween!
