Lullaby for a Haunted Night

 

With ghostly light

Sits on the porch

Still, with a knife

Right on the nose

 

Flame, light, and shine

Round lid and hollows

The pumpkin lamp

The children will follow

 

It hopes to breath

Fire and glow

As children will come

For candy tomorrow

 

Orangy dance

Hallowee’ horror

A clear, bright night

Bringing explorers

 

A wizard, a tiger

A minion, a swallow

The Jack-O’-Lantern

The children will follow

 

Deep-carved eyes

And no ears, oh no

Guiding their steps

To the candy-land world

 

With the cap removed

And two teeth in black

Spirits and witches

Start to come back

 

Right at the door

Guarded by pumpkins

An angel and demons

A spider and clown twins

 

Ghostly moon light

Counting the sheep

To the candy-land world

It’s time to sleep
