Autumn… gotta love it. As we move press toward Halloween, I thought I’d share this poem I wrote a couple years back. I absolutely adore writing poetry. Perhaps some day I’ll be able to devote more time to it.
Until then, I hope you enjoy my humble verse…

To Edgar Allan Poe:
Bloody leaves on haggard trees
Dancing, cackling in the breeze;
Bristling black cats hawk and hiss
This is known as Samonios’ kiss.
A Murder gathers for the feast
Cawing, clawing presage beast;
Pumpkins peek with grinning glow
Wordless wards of Samhain’s show.
Witches’ caldrons boil and bubble
Voiceless vexes, toil and trouble;
Cadavers crawl from gaping graves
These are known as Púca’s slaves.
Alas! I mourn the rising sun
When nature’s hex and I undone;
Spiraling entwined to the Abyss
Samonios bestows a final kiss.
Happy Halloween, my friends!
