I Love
Halloween!

I love everything about it!
The weather is nice,
the leaves are beautiful,
Fall decorations are gorgeous...

 

"Leaves of orange, yellow, and red,
softly fall around my head,
blowing wild in the wind,
Summer's at an end."

And CATS! How can you not love a holiday which decorates with cats?

 

"Black cat prowling in the night,
giving me a awful fright.
Gazing long from half-slit eyes,
almost you can hypnotize.
Eyes then slide up over my shoulder.
What do you see? The air grows colder.
Shake it off, there's nothing there.
Nothing behind me but air."

And Pumpkins, every size and shape!

 

"Pumpkin, pumpkin, burning bright,
Jack 'o Lantern in the night,
Scare the evil from my door,
and keep me safe from fright."


 

"On Hallow's Eve, when the moon is full,
and the wind is blowing the leaves around,
and a black cat prowls through shadows dark,
and the cold air magnifies every sound...

Hush! What's that noise?
Oh, it's only the wind.
I think that's all...
my courage mend,

Through the night, as black as soot,
on errand dark, I find my way,
the clouds now cover the moon so bright.
Hurry, yes hurry, I must away.

Oh, why tonight?
Why didn't I stay
behind my door?
Why did I stray,

To moonlit woods where the wind blows wild?
Look, there's a bonfire over there,
Is it people, or witches that dance around?
To go and see I must not dare.


No one can know
I'm out tonight,
risking my life,
or at least a fright.

On the scariest night, of all the year,
I brave the night, so dark, so drear,
because my love waits for me near,
For him I'll brave the fear."
