Author's Notes: It's time now for something more on the lighter-side of Halloween -- for a change!! This poem, "Count Dracula's Love," is written in a light verse form as a Clerihew-formatted write. This one is set in the more traditional irregular meter associated with this type of poem. This write is rhymed in an "aabb" sequence. It is intended to be a humorous tongue-in-cheek write. Enjoy!! Happy Halloween!! (Gary Bateman - October 25, 2015) (Clerihew)

Count Dracula’s Love

Count Dracula’s love is blood—sweet and bright red, 
And he wants to bite your neck while you’re in bed!
Seeking his next eternal bride on this All Hallows’ Eve,
His “undead” bite makes him happy and isn’t a pet peeve!

Hi D!! Great to hear from you and thanks so much for the "TR" and "FAV." Yes, for sure, it's fun to do these Clerihew writes from time to time. The funnier, the more tongue-in-cheek always makes the message more entertaining. The same Happy Halloween wishes to you from Ingrid and me!! (I've slowed down a bit of recent on my poetry since I'm back working on short stories for my second book.) BOO!! And all the best!! G
