Yellow-Orange Moon

Great, spooky feel from yellow-orange moon Flows from the sky at the darkest of nights Clouds at times try to cover the full moon Leaving and eerie feel, with lots of frights From the belfry fly a group of blind bats Flies right at you, like they knew where you were The old church has been abandoned for years But there have been creatures that have lived there Ghosts love this church, it’s near a cemetery The light of the moon shines onto the church Orange glow bringing fear into the hearts Of any mortal that screams with a lurch The beauty of the pumpkins on the steps Being lit from inside and by the moon An eerie glow transported from within Casting glows that light up every known goon Goons lead down the street on this Halloween Sure lit by the moon, and its yellow cast All the jack-o-lanterns light up the way For all these creatures to reach you at last

    Halloween-- your side of the tide... Descriptive use of words here create the atmosphere. Here in S/Africa it's not a big celebration at all. My Faith makes me feel uncomfortable about the hidden connotations. However, if I do get a knock at the door with expectant little faces all dressed up, they get candy AND a Biblical verse on a bookmark :)
