Halloween Scene

A creepy chill comes oozing in the night,
Dead boneless bodies tend to float at will,
Warlocks and witches perch on brooms in flight,
Green moon hangs low upon a haunted hill.

Soft eerie winds sigh moaningly in trees
As mystic vapor permeates the air,
Old skeletons arise to clank in breeze,
And grotesque goblins dash about to scare.

Pale stars sink stealthily behind black skies,
Huge vampire bats swoop down to sneak a bite,
Bloodcurdling shrieks, horrendous, baneful cries
Resound throughout the regions of the night.

These things occur on each All Hallow's Eve,
And ghouls will eat you if you don't believe.
