Oh goblins and spooks, skeletons and ghosts
These are the spirits who play today’s hosts
Pirates, buccaneers are part of the game
All masquerading to act in the name.
As All Hallows Eve the world knows it best
With bonfires and masks the Celts showed their zest,
Marking the end of summertime’s lush
Embracing the dark of cold, snow and slush !
