The Night Of Halloween

Witches and ghosts, scary creatures,
Black cats silently sneaking behind the trees,
So many pumpkins with ominous features,
Their fiery eyes are burning your knees
It is a night of horror and terror,
Thirsty vampires feast on innocent blood,
Children…watch out, don't make any errors,
Those crow-like claws are so thick with mud

The moon in the sky is full, bright and smiling,
There are no clouds to hinder her fun,
The million stars are gently beguiling,
'Join us if you dare, show up but don't run! '
Tonight the thread between the worlds is fine,
The souls of the dead cross over for life,
It has been like this since old, ancient times,
A tradition invented by gods, ready to strive

People dress up as monsters and mummies,
Trying to show they don't fear the dark,
They don't understand they're nothing but dummies,
A single wrong move and they are just stiff and stark
The shadows out there have been waiting to revel,
Their sinister wails ruthlessly chill to the bone
'Come out and simply dance with the devil! ...
Or you may not see your mundane sins ever atoned! '

All Hallows' Eve is just like no other,
Heaven is not trying to prevail over Hell,
Demons and angels are walking like brothers,
As if someone has put them under a spell
Giving out candy will not hold them back,
They keep flaming, thus turning gloom into sheen,
When morning comes there won't be even a track,
But never mind... enjoy the night of Halloween!

john westlake gave me your name, and i could not resist his offer OR your offer of The NIght of Halloween. i am glad i did not resist. halloween is/was one of, if not, my favorite special day of the year. as a kid i wore a cool, lifelike? witch mask which perhaps smelled a bit like the inside of a bicycle tire. when i had my little daughter to share the night with, i wore a bright orange devil mask and she wore a witch mask (with light green yarn for hair) , both of witch [i mean which! ] i made from papier mache. i really like the poem. i only might change a few little spots, so i must like it! i love the rhyming. :) - - - - - - - - - - - - my favorite lines: People dress up as monsters and mummies, Trying to show they don't fear the dark, They don't understand they're nothing but dummies, A single wrong move and they are just stiff and stark AND All Hallows' Eve is just like no other, Heaven is not trying to prevail over Hell, Demons and angels are walking like brothers, As if someone has put them under a spell ..............i confess!
