“If You've Never”
by Elsie Melchert Fowler
If you've never seen an old witch..
Riding through the sky..
Or never felt big bat's wings..
Flopping, as they fly..
If you've never touched a white thing..
Gliding through the air..
And knew it was a ghost because..
You got a dreadful scare..
If you've never heard the night owls..
And never jumped at pumpkin eyes..
Gleaming out at you..
If all of these exciting things..
You've never heard or seen..
Why then--you've missed a lot of fun..
Because--soon it's HALLOWEEN!
