The Haunted Hause

There's a house up the hilltop
We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live
Where ghotsts and goblins hide

Tonight they have their party
All the lights are burning bright
But oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight

The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about
They sing their songs to Halloween
Come join the fun they shout

But we do not want to go there
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.

- Jack Prelutsky.

Happy Halloween!

The Oak

Live thy Life,
Young and old,
Like yon oak,
Bright in spring,
Living gold;

Then; and then

Alfred Lord Tennyson
