It's All Hallow's Eve
It's All Hallow's Eve, when the
Creeping slowly about, to wake
the ghouls from their sleeeeep-
Shadows dance as darkness falls-
The dead comes alive; As the werewolf
Jack-o-lanterns flicker; Offering passage
to the pits-
Vampires linger; Using charm
Zombies feed; On a bite of
brain, or two-
Their next bloody feast,
could be; Most likely will be
The sky hides it's eyes; On a
Not wanting to see, who the
witches will scare-
Little Tommy trips, on the root
of a tree-
Trick-or-Treat my pretty; Tonight,
nothing is free!
Toothy bats; They swarm round
Spiders crawl; From the ground
Black cats chase everything that
Screams fill the streets; It's a
It's All Hallow's Eve; When the
Creeping about to wake the
ghouls from their sleeeep!
Watch your step; Be careful
what you say- or-
may not be so sweet!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!

|ooooh so creepy and scary, you aced this one Lisa! This is the very best Halloween poem I have seen so far this season. You have colorfully painted a picture of the holiday that will scare the wits out of all the little trick-or-treaters. I still remember the thrill as fear raced through my veins and butterflies filled my stomach while I ran through the darkened neighborhoods with my "big" brother. He would see some of his friends and he would ditch me. Without my protector, the fears of the night would REALLY settle in and I wouldn't know if I should try to find my way back home or run with another pack of kids. Funny how all the myth combined with the darkness made this night so much scarier than any other. You captured all of this for me in this delightful and very well written All Hallows Eve offering, Lisa. Thank you for your kind words on Eileen's tribute also. I am humbled by them to say the very least.
