Hallowed Hills - Poem by Teresa Dearing

Walk softly ‘cross these hallowed hills,
Wake not the spirits of dark chills.
As night falls ‘cross these harvest fields,
Where corn and soy, gave up their yields.
Fog now sends out her drifting hand,
To touch and chill the lowly man.
Light now a shrouded silver mist,
The moon griped in its mighty fist.
For in this land the ancient sleep,
Secrets kept the mysteries deep.

Walk softly ‘cross this hallowed keep,
Lest those spirits seek your soul to reap.

    I see that you submitted this poem in 2007 and edited it in 2011. It needs another edit in 2015.
    I'm sure you meant
    The moon gripped in its mighty fist
    instead of
    The moon griped in its mighty fist.

    Congratulations on having it selected as Member Poem of the Day.
