Into The Night

Into the night they come forth
Walking down streets and lanes
Little witches, ghosts and goblins
Along with werewolves, space men,
Pretty princesses, super heroes and more
House to house they go to gather loot;
Candy of different sizes and taste
Dropped into their sacks by house owners
Throughout the night you hear them
From one end to another they say
“Trick or treat, trick or treat, trick or treat”.

The Hug

I took her into my arms
Wrapped tightly like a blanket
Close we hugged through the night
I comforted her as she cried
She was feeling blue
A parent was dying she told
I didn’t press, could see her eyes
All she wanted was me to hug
So I hugged her like a blanket
Throughout the sad long night.

Indian Summer

Indian summer has arrive; days warm, evenings cool.
Temps are mild in late October no cold in sight.
Who knows how long it will last;
One day, two or maybe a week.
Rakes are out; leaves piles form
It’s great day to be outside and play.
Long walks with a dog to still enjoy
Before cold winters come along
Singing their icy, cold songs.
It may not be summer with flowering trees
But an indian summer still has nice breezes
Even if fall comes back bringing the cold again.

Whisked Me Away

Death came and whisked me away
He told me I could not stay
My time was up said he
Come, your soul is now free
Through town we glide down
Until the path Death found
He sent me forward on my away
Said he must part before its day
I climbed high into the sky
Past clouds that were flying by
Saw the light at the end
That is the place I will now spend.

Last Few Leaves

Out my window I see a painting;
Leaves golden, orange, brown, red
Lying scattered on the ground;
Brown bumpy knotted trees
Hold in their few branches
Couple of leaves clustered together
Trying to hold on to their branch
But against the rain streaming down
They fall to the ground to mix
With others who lie below
Staring up at the last remaining leaves
Knowing their time has come
To return to the earth once more.

So Radiant Light Shines So Bright

So radiant light shines so bright.
From up above it gives a warm glow;
Moon shines on throughout the night.

Golden, white moon gives out light
I hope the light continues to grow;
So radiant light shines so bright.

Moon stands tall without a fight
Never will moon hang low;
Moon shines on throughout the night.

Moon is such a beautiful sight;
It looks like it go with the flow,
So radiant light shines so bright.

From my bedroom I see its white
Moon looks like it putting on a show;
Moon shines on throughout the night.

Seeing moon in evening is such a delight
I enjoy the never ending glow;
So radiant light shines so bright.
Moon shines on throughout the night.

October Is Here

Season of October is here
With eerie branches losing leaves
Waving back and forth at night.
Colored leaves rustle loudly
Making one stop and look around warily.
Watching shadows dance across the ground
Only it bare, gnarled branches waving.
Noise of something falling upon the ground
Only acorns from a tree.
Nights in October seems to become spooky
As end of month looms closer
To Halloween a spooky night

Rocket Dog [Revision]

Racing around the furniture she goes.
When she will stop nobody knows.
Moving fast from one end to another,
Too much energy for her father.
A quick stop to pant at you,
She’s off again with a smile to you.
Paws racing from room to room
I don’t think she will end her zoom.
Around and around she goes,
When she will let up nobody knows.
She’s quick as can be, so don’t catch her.
For all you will see is a flash of fur.

Dream Beneath The Stars

I lay my head down beneath the stars
And dream of dreams both big and small
With shining stars that twinkle bright
The glowing moon gives out a warm light
They guide me through my dreams
As I dance upon a rainbow;
Or when I fly along with eagles
To face many adventures unknown.
To seek, to fight a dragon
Or climb to the moon on a mountain of books
My dreams take me through the night
Through flowing rivers on a raft
Or look for treasure in the jungle thick.
With stardust dancing as we dance along
The night begins to sing its last song
One more dream before the sun comes up
Moon picks me up and wraps me tight
I lay my head down beneath the stars
And dream my last dream with smiling delight.
