At the writers’ group meeting on Tuesday night one of our prompts was to write a “Hallowe’eny” poem with some specific words.
Here’s mine: Enjoy. Happy Hallowe’en, and for those of you of the pagan persuasion, Happy New Year!
This night of nights when owls and bats
fly silently beneath the moon,
and witches with their brooms and hats
dance ’round their fire and chant their rune,
when ghosts in churchyards wail and howl
and undead prowl, let every wight
shut in his folk, his kine, his fowl,
for spirits walk, this night of nights.
