On Hallowe'en the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothing can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Hallowe'en fun.
There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery. ~Joseph Conrad
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
