Halloween Poem


Recommended Posts

This is driving me nuts. When I was a kid at school, whenever Halloween came around, the teachers ALWAYS read us this same poem, but I cannot find it on the Web. The one complete couplet I can remember is...


Go home early, stay there safe, and don't go out again,

You'll be in danger if you do from goblins down the lane.

and it ends...


...and wear a lucky charm till Halloween is past.

I was asking about it at Church on Sunday. One lady who's a retired schoolteacher said she had never heard of it, but another friend said she did remember it, and rather thought it was American (which wouldn't surprise me).

Google just gives me the ice-fishing monster.

Does anyone remember it, and if so, can they quote the complete poem?

Thanks :)
