Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat..
Witch and ghost make merry on this last of dear October's days.
Nothing on Earth is so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night.
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about but few have seen.
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
'tis near Halloween.
Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees,
Tonight is Halloween.
Hark! Hark to the wind! 'Tis the night, they say,
When all souls come back from the far away-
The dead, forgotten this many a day!
As spirits roam the neighborhoods at night,
Let loose upon the Earth till it be light.
Those who don't believe in Magic will never find it.
Where there is no imagination there is no horror.
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear,
and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
