Halloween Poems

Michael R. Burch

far softer than a sigh;

if shadows fly

while children toss their heads

uneasy in their beds,
beware the witch's eye!

If goblins loom
within the gloom
till playful pups grow terse;

if birds give...

Completing the Pattern

who kept life’s compact and who thus endure

Stuck in place…
Free in space…
