Masked Ghosts And Goblins (Tanka)

Masked ghosts and goblins

Dashing madly, house to house

Time for trick or treat

Who doesn’t like Halloween

When chocolate is the prize

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

All Hallows Eve (Acrostic)

Approach with haste O’ pagan night

Let ghost and ghoul cause scream and fright

Little children in costume plead

Holding out bags, on treats they feed

Alas the spirits under moonlit sky

Lumber and moan from low and high

Leading us all in a sinister dance

On Halloween in the devils prance

We think not of the origin of day

Slinking around in the shadows we play

Ever oblivious is probably best

Villains and monsters and all of the rest

Endear this festival from east to west
