Inside Dracula's Castle


Inside Dracula's Castle
I'm ready to explore the corridors
and halls

Inside Dracula's Castle
Floating giant skulls keep watch over
everything
Including me

Walking past them
I can tell they're ready to give chase
Turning around, they freeze
Attacking and destroying them, they're
no more

Continuing on
Through the library
I didn't know Dracula loved to read so much
The books, which are many, are all shelved

Inside Dracula's Castle
I can tell there are many windows
Looking out of a few of them
I can tell things are going bump in the night
Outside
In the graveyard

Passing through the dining room
In Dracula's Castle
I can tell a meal was prepared for the master
vampire not that long ago
As the remains of a meal are still here
He's in the castle somewhere

Inside Dracula's Castle
I've seen it all
Well the heart of it, anyway
I must continue on
Into the night
While I'm inside
Inside Dracula's Castle

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
