H ow the dark of night devours
A ll souls who gather near
L onging to reach their destiny
L iving, yet no longer here
O therworldly, seeking shadows
W hen the light of day resigns
E ver frightening in their disguise
E phemeral glow ignites their eyes
N onphysical spirits, at midnight, shine

An angel watches over gloom
Sheds her light in darkness, shine
Let spirits wander, not to pine
From out their corpse, they will flee
Their search, to find serenity
To rest their weary, ghostly form
To rise above the laden storm
Of humans, wandering, so lost
Who vilify, but at what cost?
Then drown their sorrows, lest repent
The blaming of, they don’t relent
They look away, and do not hear
Laments of those, so filled with fear
But they who wander, do not stay
They dare not waste another day
Instead they fly, their spirit, high
No longer tethered, they breathe a sigh
Russet and red,
Draped in a cape,
That covers her head.
She tucks inside,
The golden locks of hair,
Her mama told her,
To never bare.
A mist forms around her, ever so,
There, in the forest, unafraid, though.
They envelop her,
In a magical dance,
She smiles, happily,
This is not happenstance.
Knowing it is they,
Who come to call,
Near the end of fall.
And this child awaits, ever patiently, their arrival,
For she counts on them, for her very survival…
Specter’s roam about the night
Shadows stand in open doors
Footsteps creak across the floors
Thinking this is just a dream
Things just aren’t what they seem
Figures lurk about your home
Now you see you’re not alone
Taunting you until you scream
Trick or treat, it’s Halloween!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! BE SAFE!
