A Fanciful Twist Halloween party

~ HALLOWEEN ~ Tonight is the night When dead leaves fly
Like witches on switches Across the sky,
When elf and sprite Flit through the night On a moony sheen
Tonight is the night When leaves make a sound
Like a gnome in his home Under the ground,
When spooks and trolls Creep out of holes Mossy and green
Tonight is the night When pumpkins stare Through sheaves and leaves Everywhere,

When ghouls and ghost And goblin host Dance round their queen. It's Halloween!
