Spooktacular Halloween Poetry!

Want to write some spooky poetry? Maybe with a humorous twist? Try an Epitaph Poem and get the final word!

Epitaphs are short rhymes that can be found on headstones or gravestones to use a spookier term. You can find them in one of Halloween’s spookiest venues…graveyards!

Here’s a couple of real ones!

Now try writing one of your own. It can be two or four lines long. It can rhyme or include a pun. It basically tells the story of, ahem, what lies beneath your feet.

Here’s one I wrote:

Here lies Jenny Starr.

Who liked to raid the candy jar.

She ate every mint.

Now here’s a big hint.

She’s a ghost you can smell from afar.

You can then draw tombstones and write your epitaphs on them! You can carve or write them on styrofoam or bristle board and put them on your lawn or outside your door for trick or treaters.

Have a safe, fun and hauntingly good Halloween everyone!
