A Halloween Sonnet

When the wind in the Hollow begins to cry
And the rustling leaves begin to fly
When black ink seeps into an autumn sky
As the man in the moon begins to rise

When pumpkins turn evil and bare their teeth
And sit on your doorstep waiting to eat
The hobblin, goblins, passing down the  street
As the dead in the graveyard slowly creep 

When a cackle, crackles into the night
When bats and witches on broomsticks take flight
When you find yourself trembling, filled with fright
Lost in the chill, thrill of a scary sight

As you run door-to-door for trick or treat
On a night when no one,  will dare to sleep.

Everything Halloween

    Incomplete! But very very well began. I wish I could complete in a collaboration but all the glory should be yours alone. Just a few more lines and you will know. Complete for Holloween and save it for then.

    Hi John, Don't understand? It is a sonnet - 14 lines each containing 10 syllables. Am I missing something? Elaine

    Lovely sonnet . I liked the most the expression " As the man in the man begins to use'. If it is for the contest, give once over to the rhymes
