JACK O’LANTERN
Our jack-o-lantern’s glowing
with a candle lit inside.
It’s sits upon our top porch step,
a helpful gleaming guide.
So, all who come to spook us here
the jack-o-lantern greets.
You’re welcomed with a toothsome smile
as well as candy treats.

Halloween Poem #2

Halloween Poems for kids by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

GHOST 2 GHOST
Said one ghost
to the other ghost,
“I like Halloween the most.”
Then said Ghost Two to number One,
“Yes, Halloween is lots of fun,
floating out from door to door,
saying ‘BOO,’
(but not much more).”
Said number One to number Two,
I wish we could eat candy, too!”
Said number Two, “Here’s the fix.
We can’t have treats
but we do tricks!”
With that, he floated out of view
and cackled loud and shouted,
BOO!”

Halloween Poem #3

HALLOWEEN CANDY
Chocolate stars
and candy bars,
Milk Duds in a box.
Candy corn and taffy,
bright pink gum that’s shaped like rocks.
Jolly Ranchers,
chocolate kiss.
Forget each bat and ghost.
When it comes to Halloween,
I love the candy most!

Halloween Poem #4

Halloween Poems for kids by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

HALLOWEEN NIGHT
It’s spooky.
It’s kooky.
It’s Halloween night.
When we dress up scary
to give our friends a fright.
I’m dressed up as Frankenstein.
My brother is a ghost.
My sister is a wicked witch.
But what I love the most
is when we walk from door to door
our bags bang on our feet.
And best of all, our neighbors
load our bags with chocolate treats.

Halloween Poem #5

Halloween Poems for kids by Denise Rodgers on ClassroomPoems.com.

MY NEIGHBOR
My neighbor wears a cape at night.
His face is mottled green.
His hairline is a filled-in V
slicked back with greasy cream.
His house is painted orange and black.
His front steps are so creaky.
There’s bats up in his attic, and
at night, they’re kind of squeaky.
There’re cobwebs dangling on his porch.
They’re filmy, gray, and sticky.
Worse yet, all the spiders there
are huge and just plain icky.

I’m sure you’re guessing: Halloween?
But you would be so wrong.
My neighbor’s like this every day.
He’s spooky all year long!
