31 Days of Ghosts: Poetry and Quotes for Halloween

10 Oct

The first set of quotes, and some poems, for this week will be all about Halloween.  And there’s a lot!  All of them culled from The Quote Garden which included some poems by Nicholas Gordon from

Stir the fire till it lowe
How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon
From the slow opening curtains of the clouds
Walking in beauty to her midnight throne! ~George Croly

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about but few have seen.  ~Author Unknown

Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night! ~Elizabeth Akers Allen

They that are born on Halloween shall see more than other folk.  ~Saying of unknown origin

You wouldn’t believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake. ~Carolyn Wells

Being in a band you can wear whatever you want – it’s like an excuse for Halloween everyday.  ~Gwen Stefani

On Halloween, witches come true;
Wild ghosts escape from dreams.
Each monster dances in the park…. ~Nicholas Gordon,

A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises.  Ghosts were created when the first man awoke in the night.  ~J.M. Barrie
