Halloween’s Dance – A Poem

the_cheshire_cat_by_70mustang-d4envpu

Rivers cross, at forest dark
A deafening howl, on wind does ride
Of moaning creatures of the night
Hungry to feast and souls to take
The headless horseman, a traitor’s curse
Doomed on galloping steed in haste
A graveyard’s hero aglow, with spirit’s dance
Faceless forms of long dead lives
Emerging from unholy ground
Unmarked graves of powdered bones
Creatures foretold to haunt the wood
Like sirens call to rudderless ship
Hearkening to the yearn, lights last glimmer
Berserk with madness, to escape ground’s prison
The play of death, Halloween’s dance
Free, but for a night, haunting deathly hallows
Awaiting the sign of sun’s first light
To order them back to earth’s embrace.
