All Hallows' Evesong


13 October 2021: All Hallows’ Evesong


midst crackling flames

and cackling mirth

and rancid rot

that lifts from earth

the spirits swoop

and swarm and play

for at long last

arrived their day

to romp and tromp

and hoot and

boo and scare live

souls both old and new

to slink in shadows

play in rain

that tears at leaves

and makes trees plain

to relish sacred

timely death

who culminates

and fosters rest

to teach that brief

mortality

enforces raw humanity

preventing living souls

to breathe a single

love-dispossessed breath


oh welcome the macabre

refrain all hallows’ eve

sings unrestrained!
