It's Halloween

a poem by Jack Prelutsky

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night:

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.

Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight
it's Halloween!


  1. I've been reading this poem (and the whole rest of the Jack Prelutsky Halloween book) to my kids every night for days now!

  2. Love me some Prelutsky and Silverstein! Thanks for sharing!
