A cold wind blows and hollow voices laugh
The moon shines bright and the stars go black
A night for mischief, a night of prods and pokes
You’ve stumbled into Halloween, the night of Unseelie Folk!
Is that a cat, a dog, or even a bear?
Keep a watchful eye: there are shadows everywhere!
Who knows what lurks in darkness, concealed deep within,
Mischiefs upon mischiefs: grinning Loki’s playful kin!
As you go from home to home, seeking sweet and savory treats,
Never forget the awful tricks as pixies ply their savage feats
Listen for the distant laughs and all those sinister chuckles
For the threats you face are not the sort to rely on simple knuckles
They dance between worlds as a snowflake dances upon wind
Childlike and strong, they know no thought of sin
Ah, children of the Hallow’s Eve, they do so love to play their pranks!
A trickster and a mischief-maker is every one of their esteemed ranks!
Never forget, no matter how sweet the sweets
Never forget, no matter how happy the annual retreat
Never forget, when the Moon and stars shine so very, very bright
You can only ever be a visitor here, on this their night!
