Halloween Poems for kids
by Paul Perro

Halloween is a fun night
With lots of strange creatures to see.
There are black cats,
And giant bats,
Let's meet some more, shall we?

Vampires have pale white skin
They just come out at night.
Give one half a chance and he
Will give your neck a bite.

A witch flies past on her broomstick,
Over the roof of your house.
It would be better
Not to upset her,
She'd turn you into a mouse.

Skeletons walk about the town.
They have no skin, just bone.
Sometimes for fun they play their ribs
Just like a xylophone

I am a spooky ghost
Being scary's what I do.
I like to sneak behind people
And whisper softly "Wooooo!"

I come from ancient Egypt
They call me the mummy.
Bandages cover my arms, my legs,
My head, my chest, my tummy.

Grim Reaper
The grim reaper looks very scary,
But it's not really what he intends.
With his scythe and his hood,
He is misunderstood,
He really just wants to be friends.

The sun is going down,
It will be night time soon.
The werewolf will be coming out
And howling at the moon.

With its scary horns & giant wings
Everyone's scared of the demon.
All he has to do is smile,
And people run off screamin'.

The Headless Horseman
I am the headless horseman,
Has anyone seen my head?
Oh never mind, there's a pumpkin,
That'll do instead!

A zombie shuffles and staggers,
Eyes rolled, arms outstretched,
"The Walking Dead"
It's often said
(But I think that's far-fetched).

Easter Bunny
I am the Easter Bunny, 
You see me at Easter time.
I think it's pretty obvious
That I'm in the wrong rhyme.

The Devil
Two horns, a tail, a trident... 
Must be the devil, I guess.
No wait, that's not the devil, it's
A boy in fancy dress.

Jack O'Lantern
There are lots of monsters about tonight,
But you'll be safe, don't worry.
The Jack o'lantern will scare them off,
They won't be back in a hurry.

As well as Halloween poems, Paul Perro has also written a collection of Christmas Poems for Kids
