Powers of the Moon

The moon engulfs the house in a distance The deep pale yellow glow that it carries Is often covered by the clouds that flow Bringing fright to all people that tarries Jack-O-Lanterns sit on the cold front porch Frigid due to the ghosts that reside there Loving to scare those that come and stop by There’s a nip and fearfulness in the air The graveyard sits outside this creepy house With gravestones showing dates of long ago Skeletons come to life wanting your skin Your soul is a treat, sure that’s all they know Rumors are that witches live in the house Loving to cast spells on Halloween night Turning unsuspecting guests into toads Leaving legends of great fear at their sight The moon really brings these things to light With its deep amber glow it does possess The whole scene is lighted on down below The powers of the moon, full of distress

    My Shakespeare of Hallowing , friend Russell, so beautiful verses for witches and ghosts, no wonder they thrive because of your poetry! Excellent work!
