Moon Shines Brilliantly

The wrought iron fence with metal pickets Separates the real world from this horror The moon shines brilliantly down onto you Catches the graveyard tombstones of splendor The mighty tree in the yard looks horrid With shadows that are long and frightening At base of the tree lies a lit pumpkin There to scare all those who’s enlightening There is a gate with skulls set on the fence You enter at your own risk, ghosts live here They’re in the haunted house in the graveyard The ones that will freeze you when they appear Stars shine very brightly on Halloween Shooting stars as to give a great warning That this night’s purely evil in all ways Nothing here tonight is truly charming You can hear the voices calling your name Holding a real attraction to your ears The silver moon shines even brighter now Taking away inhibitions and fears
