I buy my favorite treats
for on this night I still believe
that one day someone will come knocking at my door.Gazing out upon the night
from my window high
wondering - wondering if I might
spy someone knocking on my door.
With locked doors and darkened lights
I do my best to add
to the spookiness and the frights
of someone wanting to knock on my door.For five years and then five more
I wait for “Trick or Treat!”
But what am I doing this for?
for no one comes to knock on my door.
Then late at night: our beggars dodged
we come to life and merry
eat our way through our bags of stodge
for we have avoided someone knocking on the door!
