I took the sheet and draped it over
Not expecting what I’d discover
Started to feel a presence hover.
Even with the light beside
I felt I should run and hide
They’re real! The grownups must have lied
When suddenly my sheet lifted up
A ghostly sight holding a cup
Drifted near, sat next to me
Offering a cup of tea
He was a friendly ghostly being
Could not believe what I was seeing
Wasn’t scary and I wasn’t fleeing
Strange but true this Halloween tale
This ghostly friend didn’t fail
To prove you can’t judge a ghost by its cover.
