As soon as it’s November
the pumpkins will be gone
the skeletons are in the attic
free of ghosts is our lawn.
For a moment there is silence
in peace, our life can stay
for just one small and little moment
before the next big holiday.
Enjoy the break and get your strength
you will need it you will see.
Go for walks enjoy the season
be relaxed, and smile, feel free.
But first of all, before the break
We need to work and take a beat
to get us through the pumpkin time
and play the trick or treat!
