Graveyard at Night

Into the graveyard I walk all alone Save the spirits that follow me at times The gravestones show dates that are very old Seems the church saw me and begins its chimes All at once the ground does begin to shake And up the ghosts and spirits come to fright They scare me nearly to death, fly at me My fellow spirits join them with their might I run and hide behind an old dead tree But the owl gives up my true whereabouts And they all plow right through my lost being Fear brings out my soul and I start to shout I’m torn from my body, flowing around They now force me into the ground alright Into the depths of hell to burn always Because I entered the graveyard at night

    Truly I have walked through a cemetery at night, Just to take a short cut for fun, This was not in my hometown's cemetery, But it was one in a foreign land! So no spirits followed me around! Russell, if you try to scare us, I have to admit, you are doing a great job! Excellent writing and very effective! Are more spooky poems coming? Ha-ha! I have to prepare!
