Happy Halloween (Goblins)

Happy Halloween (Goblins)

A Poem by Richard Williams
"

A double acrostic Halloween poem.

"


Hardly a mouse stirs as goblins search

Armed with scare, fitted with the mantra
Places dark, foreboding dank and deep
Pits of pendulum, deep pleas for help
Yelps as ghoulish, catacombs and gray.

Houses lit with Jack-o'-lantern torch
Air of autumn, fallen leafy sea;
Lingering lament of midnight howl
Laughter of a trick-or-treating knell,
Ominous haunting ghosts ever so
Wily, wild-eyed skull and crossbow
Eye of newt and Edgar Allan Poe.
Enter now the host of Hallowed Eve
Noisome spirits rising in between.
