I don't know that there are real ghosts and goblins, but there are alwys more trick-or -treaters than neighborhood kids.
Men say that in this midnight hour,
The disembodied have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By Wizard oak and fairy stream.
Backward, turn backward,
O time in your flight,
make me a child again
just for tonight.
Elizabeth Akers Allen
A house is never still in darkness for 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
And ghosties and ghoulies.........
