Poem # 10

HAUNTED HOUSE

~

Behold the haunted house

Behold the haunted house

Twisted black branches scrape frosty windows

Twisted black branches scrape frosty windows

Haunted branches scrape

Twisted black house, the frosty windows behold

*

Shutters flap in Autumn winds

Shutters flap in Autumn winds

Dry leaves go skittering by

Dry leaves go skittering by

Shutters in Autumn go skittering

Dry winds flap by leaves

*

Ghosts moan while chains rattle

Ghosts moan while chains rattle

Do you dare enter tonight

Do you dare enter tonight

Do you moan while Ghosts rattle chains

Tonight dare enter

*

Behold, frosty Ghosts, in chains, go skittering by windows

The twisted winds dare scrape you dry

Tonight black Autumn leaves rattle haunted branches

Do enter house, while shutters flap…moan
