Twas a tale from a long time ago
A spooky tale as the story was told
A tale of a Halloween Fright
That occurs on every Halloween night





Ghosts would appear this time each year
Such a sight that made the villagers fear
So warnings with sign by candle light doth shine
But there's no turning back now
Hence we go to the scene of the crime




You see in these parts before this village built
Lived a bewitching spinstress named Leota Oakbrook

With riches and wealth being unsurpassed
Inevitable was her future not to last
She was pursued by three suitors with a wicked plan
So their devices of thievery soon began
They tried to steal her money instead of her heart
And thats where their evil plan soon fell apart

Their actions resulted in deadly consequence
All three perished with out penance
See they were poisoned but mistakenly
Miss Oakbrook drank the potion intended for three
For now in her death her spell has been cast
To bring back their spirits from the past




So walk these fair lanes and streets of this hollow
But look over your shoulder to be sure your not followed




By these ghosts from Halloween past
Three ghosts and a spirit who didnt last





As they haunt here on this special night
Be fore warned of this spooky fright
And be wary of the evil witch's spell
Get your treats, perform no tricks and do not dwell

And be careful in this village on Halloween
For the ghosts come a haunting and are reportedly seen!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!


Here is to these truths we do present

Thanks so much! The poem (if you can call it that) was what I told the TOTs as I took them starting at the sign then tree then Leota the the 3 ghosts where they got their candy.

I got very effective at spoofing the kids at the point in the tale by warning them to look over their shoulder like something was sneaking up behind them that they would all turn around... Next year I might have someone do that!

Had a great Halloween!

Oh I wanted to include link to my blog Mansion at Midnight. I have some details on some of the prop making I have.. you have to go back to some older posts. The column where Madam Leota Oakbrook is made from and some of the other props. Most everything I have I made from scratch, using and hacking existing stuff. My ravens with the lighted eyes are just dollar store ravens and I made the circuits with led eyes and run them off powersupply... I rarely buy premade props... I am more of a "systems integrator" LOL

Enjoy!
