Halloween Phantom (Version 1)
The phantom haunts you happily from now through Halloween.
And was delivered by a friend who (hopefully) was not seen.
The spirit of the neighborhood has come to wish you well.
Someone, somewhere selected you to receive this happy spell.
You must display the phantom on your door so all can spy.
That you’re already haunted by this happy little guy.
Now, fix 3 sacks with goodies like the ones given to you.
Ring someone’s bell and leave a treat and make them happy too!
Halloween Phantom (2nd Version)
The phantom ghost has come to town
To leave some goodies… I see you’ve found.
If you wish to make this a happier fall…
Continue this greeting, this phantom call.
First, post this phantom where it can be seen
and leave it there until Halloween.
This will scare other phantoms who may visit —
Be sure to participate, don’t be fis bidget!
Second, make two treats, two phantoms, two notes like this,
Deliver them to two neighbors who may have been missed.
Don’t let them see you, be sneaky, no doubt,
and make sure they put their phantom ghost out.
Next, you have only one day to act, so be quick!
Leave it at doors where the phantom hasn’t hit.
Deliver at dark when there is no light…
Ring the bell and run — and stay out of sight!
and last, but not least, come join in the season.
Don’t worry, be happy… you need no good reason.
Be cool, have fun, and remember — don’t be seen!
By the way, here’s wishing you a Happy Halloween!
