I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
The witch with a switch
rose up on her broomstick
a silhouette of dread
in the pale moonlight.
A werewolf’s howl close by
and spooks fill the sky.
then the Count
Dracula himself arose
with a blood red leer
so frightening, so alarming
with hearts a pounding
the night of Halloween
The witch’s cackle
sounded dark and eerie
over a moonlit cemetery.
It’s Halloween the night of fright
and weird delight!
The skeletons dance
and we all fall into a trance.
Oh! The romance of the unknown
and the werewolf with a snarl
like a fool, began to drool
and in great glee
did cry out
to one and all
and a night of frightful delight!

Thank you for your comments Bill, Cris, and Shauna hope you had a Happy Halloween. The one holiday I had really missed. Unfortunately, no reason anymore to dress up but I am getting my spirit back. I think next year I will dress up as a witch and walk the streets just for fun.
