Just As Me...A Halloween Rhyme

Just As Me…A Halloween Rhyme
Date: September 19,2013

Seasons turn, October brings
Golden hues and waning greens
Soon to come, the fateful hour
When demons reign and vampires glower

Dusk is falling, daylight fades
Tree tops whisper serenades
The night air crackles, magic looms
Witches mount their ancient brooms

A pinch of death, a dash of rot
Found bubbling in the cauldron pot
The shaman stirs his deadly brew
Then stoops to taste the rancid stew

Out past the mill, the graveyard looms
Tonight the spirits leave their tombs
One night to rise from their decay
To walk the land in search of prey

Around a crypt, ten cat’s meow
Across the hills, werewolves howl
The living dead will celebrate
The time is nigh to seize their fate

Alas, alas…all Hallows eve
You’re soon to doubt what you believe
Ghouls and goblins rule this night
Bent on ruin and ghostly fright

Oh Halloween, sweet Halloween
A night of shock and grisly screams
There’s no other place I’d rather be
Than among the souls… just as ME

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
