Death's Hand

Smell of burnt wood is wafting in the air Creating tears within my tender eyes House is in the graveyard, is oddly real Scary is its presence with no disguise It’s frightening that it’s so dark outside Only jack-o-lanterns flooding the porch An eerie otherworld light from above Centered right on the front door with a lurch There are some sounds of chains moving and howls Wandering through the graveyard on this night Halloween makes me tremble with great fear They appear in front of me, what a sight Ghouls and ghosts, with the vampires and werewolves All show up wanting to tear me apart But I don’t want any of this, I run I go straight in the creepy house, I dart As I go in the creatures outside leave As if knowing something worse is inside So I look by the light of the pumpkins Right there is death himself right by my side His bone hand reaches out and touches me And I feel quite cold, thus I start to freeze Death extinguished me and before I go I hear a woman scream, she’s very pleased

    Wonder who that woman is in that house?..Scary one..Thanks for the visit by my page..If frost comes behind the rain that is dropping, it will be the last of the blooms of summer..They say that it is to be warmer this week though so I don't know..The pale pink running rose is just loaded with bloosoms right now..It has nearly as many as it had in spring..I don't know if it will be the last or not for only God knows..Sara
