When Jack-o'-lanterns flare?

Sayings for Halloween Cards
This Halloween
I'd like to brew
A thrilling, chilling
Scare for you

Three little ghostesses
Sitting on postesses,
Eating buttered toastesses,
Greasing their fistesses,
Up to their wristesses,
Oh, what beastesses
To make such feastesses!
-- Anonymous

Wailed a ghost in a graveyard at Kew,
"Oh, my friends are so fleeting and few,
For it's gravely apparent
That if you're transparent
There is no one who knows if it's you!
-- Myra Cohn Livingston

If you take a carrot on Halloween night,
And, holding it over a candlelight,
Pinch your left ear, take off your left shoe,
This will mean good fortune to you.
