Front Yard Scene

In my front yard there is a very old tree Filled with Halloween tricks for this heinous night Light of a full moon would eventually Set up the scene of some skeletons tonight They play with the black cats that sure walk around What horrors that this night creates does astound There are witch’s brooms and their assorted spell books That sit on top of gravestones giving wry looks There are fearsome scarecrows with their outstretched arms And ravens that fly around and fly so free They show the evil of the yard and its harms All fictitious true, but still a sight to see Halloween brings out intense feelings within Shows us just how bad it surely could have been But the fun leaves its mark, as this dark sight does Over the top scene I have for front yard shows
