Boo Basket (and Cute Boo Poem)

Do you BOO?  Neighbors in my area give these anonymous, fun gifts during the Halloween season.  I found this "cute" version of the Boo Poem (scroll down) to add some variety to my gift (and throw off those neighbors who were attempting to figure out who left their gift based on the poem version I have used in past years!)
 Here is a closeup of Mabelle's adorable pumpkin girl.  (See her stamps and digi designs here.)
And here is a peek inside the basket.  Isn't this a fun time of year?  Of course, our favorite part is to get dressed in dark clothes, leave this at a neighbor's door, ring and RUN!

Here is the poem:

Since this is the time for goblins and bats
Halloween spirits and ghosts and cats
Happenings are weird and witches make brew
The following are the things I wish for you.
May the only spirit you chance to meet
Be the spirit of love and friends that are sweet.
May the only goblin that comes your way
Be the neighborhood phantom, the breeze takes away.
So by tomorrow, pick a friend down the street
And give to them a Halloween treat.
Fill a basket with goodies galore,
Then leave it at their front door.
You only have one day to do this, so hurry
Leave your gifts and run in a flurry
As this boo moves along from friend to friend,
All good wishes go on and never end
