Halloween Treats

Here’s to excited children searching for sweets,

On Halloween night there are good things to eat, 

Lurking in the dark strange creatures are stirring,

Lethargy gone, their minds are whirring,

Only the pranksters will venture the streets,

While the rest will be home counting their treats,

Every parent will know if their children are safe,

Each ghoul and goblin are counted even the waifs,

No monsters are allowed in their dreams tonight,

The little ones might want to leave on the light,

Reading stories after they’ve been tucked in bed,

Each thought of candy gone from their head,

All parents will know how they’ve been blessed,

To see eyes all closed and the children at rest,

Stretching in their sleep and smiles on each face,

Sweets for the sweet, at the right time and place.
