The Ghost With The Most

Halloween poems for kids illustration Ghost With The Most
All this poor little ghost wants for his house is some visitors!
The Ghost With The Most

“Boo! Boo Hoo!”,
cried the ghost with the most.
No one comes to visit me,
though I’m the perfect host.

I decorate with cobwebs,
sweep the spiders under the rug,
Yet no one ever offers me
a kind word or a hug.

I don’t know what the reason is.
I don’t know what could cause it,
‘Cause I always, yes I always
keep my skeletons in the closet.

Sure, I may look scary
but if someone really knew me,
they wouldn’t be afraid
’cause they could see
right through me.

LET’S CHAT ABOUT THE POEM ~ IDEAS FOR TALKING WITH KIDS

Empathy

1. The little ghost in this Halloween poem thinks they’re making their house nice for visitors when they decorate with cobwebs. Do you think the little ghost is making their house nice? Why do you think visitors are still scared of the little ghost ?

2. This poem is about how people can see things differently. Can you think of some other times when people see the same thing differently? Is one perspective more “right” than the other?
