Don’t go past the graveyard tonight.
It’s late and dark, just right for a fright.
The souls are restless, spiteful and loud,
keeping the threats they once avowed.
Witches fly high, while zombies lie low.
Spirits float where cold winds blow.
Shadows stumble between the trees,
while old hobgoblins taunt and tease.
Heavy footsteps leave deep treads
upon ancient eternal rotting beds.
Whispers echo over crypts and stones
as wind rattles teeth and skeleton bones.
Bats take to wing in pale moonlight. 
Beware what walks the graveyard tonight.

Happy Halloween!

  1. Mmmmmmmm, this is delicious. Spooky delicious. Love it.

    your lines: "Heavy footsteps leave deep treads
    upon ancient eternal rotting beds." Chilling to the bone.

  10. It's a good thing I'm an indoor kitty because it sounds spooky to be outside tonight.

  11. A neglected cemetery - sad and scary at the same time. The people buried there probably aren't happy. If you like csray and unusual things, look at Undine's Strange Company ( Some very interesting and weird things she writes about.

  12. Oh I love this!!! It's so perfect. I'm going to add this to our spooky stories/poems collection to read to the kids each year.

  13. That poem is so cool. You did a great job. Perfect for Halloween.

  14. YOU are just the best. Loved that and big BIG smile here/ xox
