On this festival night in Alamo Square
The chilly season of Fall hangs in the air
San Franciscan children all can feel
Dressed as ghost and gremlins, this is a night to steal.
These friendly phantasms drift door to door
With satchels and buckets in hand to score
Sweet candies, and treats, and fun galore.
With a ring of a doorbell the ritual starts
And an opening door is the cue to the part
Where shouts of "Trick or Treat!” warm the heart.
