Halloween Nights - Halloween Night

Halloween Nights The image of death Complete with scythe and old robe Walking towards you Down harshly-lit pumpkin path Through dreary cemetery Old leaves decaying Crackling sound scare passersby Darkness of the night Keeps everyone on the edge Ghosts play, riling each other Terror impedes growth Of poor small children passing The haunted mansion With all bats flying around Screams of unwary people Dances of creatures And skeletons scaring all Who dare to walk by All of these pieces of hell Happen on Halloween nights

    Congratulati0ons on your win. You have so many images in these few lines that bring back memories from childhood. The best part of moving so much was new candies. I also enjoyed the way you decorated the houses, too.

    Yes, I think you did right to put this one in her contest. I think it captures the most about Halloween of all the ones I read of yours tonight.
