    You're a very naughty girl Linda Ori! But of course you were only thinking of the metre and rhyme when you were writing this...never lingering for a moment on the content... ... spell.. binding as always! X (Report) Reply

    Darkness pervades your poem, and yet there is some immaculate beauty in it. Loved the flow, thanks for sharing, Linda.

    Ahh, I came across this one a week too late. Oh well, I still see remnants of Halloween around me, so it's better late than never. Great writing, Linda! (Report) Reply

    This is exquisite. To some of us (both under and over the age of 40) this is more real
    than imaginary. Love this style and the bewitchment of the words. (smile) (Report) Reply

    When I read this on forum, I just had to come here and add it to 'my favorites' and vote it a 10, for I think it is a truly good piece of scary, bone-chilling fear! ! Well done! ! (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
