All Hallow’s Eve

It was a dark and stormy night
Wait, I’ve heard that before
But then there came a knocking
A knocking at my door

The sound it was foreboding
I feared to answer such
But to the door I trembled
Quaking at the touch

It knocked again, I shuddered
Helter Skelter Fiddle Foe
Wait, was that a ghost I just saw
And where did it go

There were giggles screams and shouts
I held my breath and waited
Then “trick or treat” rang out
And soon I was elated
