Spread the love


Dispassionate her breath a promise made
Echo: Maid
Combed woodlands cold to hunt for prey
Echo: Pray

Soon she found some off-course at night
Echo: Knight
On a path where men with maidens meet
Echo: Meat

Their cries were drowned on desolate sea
Echo: See
She-devil on the prowl had heart of steel
Echo: Steal

The tales traveling north loitered on stairs
Echo: Stare
Spills dolor and dread thru sound and sight
Echo: Site

A word of caution to the wise who mourn
Echo: Morn
Dare depart not dead with hate and scorn
Echo: born

Halloween where ghouls and spirits reel
Echo: Real
Near brume and shadows moan and wait
Echo: Weight

    Oh, Sanaa, I love this poem! It’s spooky and just right for Halloween. The echo part I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it, and it is awesome! 🙂
