The Villain

While joy gave clouds the light of stars,
That beamed wher'er they looked;
And calves and lambs had tottering knees,
Excited, while they sucked;
While every bird enjoyed his song,
Without one thought of harm or wrong--
I turned my head and saw the wind,
Not far from where I stood,
Dragging the corn by her golden hair,
Into a dark and lonely wood.

Omg. You are sooo good. I've never head of another Grengs before. I'm Janelle grengs. =D I wonder if we are related...? Great poems though. I loved it. =]
The comment I just wrote was supposed to read: 'personal angst and dread'
The first ten or so lines of this work begin to express a sense of personal angst and fread that many can relate to. I have to say I was disappointed to see the rest of it take a downhill turn into something like bedtime scary stories that children tell each other at a slumber party. I just think that you have got some real intensity in you and I want to see more of it!
i did enjoy it a lot! On the whole I love horror style! best wishes Aram
