When winds blow cold and the hour is late
Stingy Jack comes through the gate
His eyes aglow, their fire bright
as goblins dance in sheer delight.
Upon your step he’ll slowly sneak
As fellow tricksters spy, he’ll speak
His challenge issued, “Trick or Treat?”
You’re warned to give him something sweet.
Be ready on All Hallows Night
All souls are free; expect a fright
Vampires, ghouls, and fairy queen
The night is here, it’s Halloween!
