Poem: All Hallow’s Eve

On All Hallows’ Eve 
Ghost and ghouls come at night
Dancing and shaking to cause fright
Amongst decaying fallen leaves

In twilight believers light
Waxy candles in ole Jack’s head
To scare away the creeping dead
Bringing forth death’s blight

Each of the prayers are read
A protection over their homes
From the evil that roams
Countryside dripping blood bright red

Terrifying dead voices moans
As children in frightful masks run
Away from creatures before tomorrow’s sun
Forces them back to their beds of loam 

This week’s experimental poem is a quatrain following an ABBA BCCB CDDC DEED rhyming scheme. You can read more about this poetry form by clicking here.
