Alas I lay awake on this cold night
Alone and filled with mortal dread and fear
I lay forlorn and locked in frozen fright
Although the glowing moon was bright and clear
The night described of course was Halloween
With countless witches dancing wild with lust
The warlocks danced in time so cruel and mean
The force of evil spirits was their thrust
The Devils moved once more across the land
Spreading terror all around the world
And so they charged, this great and gruesome band
Proclaimed their evil cry with flags unfurled
And so at last the dismal dawn did break
The witches gone and I’m alive awake
Continuing the Halloween frightfest!
Thank you, Valdis, for this nightmarish poetic vision: thank heavens it was all a dream…or was it?
Stay tuned for more fiendish fun as Halloween Sonnet Sunday continues!
