Allhallows'Chant the silver clouds
Across the misty moon
Sing the wind into the trees
And dance across the sky
Stir your cauldron, shine your broom
Pluck the moonglow herbs and meet your sisters
Through dream unto the stars we fly.
Run and hide as well you can
You'll not want to stay here long
By the time they miss you there
You will surely be long gone.
Grab your witch-hat, grab your broom
Call your cat and chase the moon
Dancing far across the sea
Round and round, and home with thee!
Tricksy folk will walk tonight
Putting all offset its right
The candle flame you've set alight
Shan't keep them off your door outright
O this night,
3rd Place Literary
Moonlight SerenadePain erupts around the swollen womb
As the cycle of day turns to night,
Full moon starring the Night Sky Feature.
Unwanted muse to peel away
Layers of saturated flesh,
Blood pooled around where the body lay twisted.
A cry pierces the night sky
Splitting the clouds like lightning,
Settling down like ashes that taste of leaves.
Thunderous echoes follow after
While fear spreads below,
Tremors threaten the threshold and force the break.
Alone, the babe with Canine eyes,
Steps forward from the grave
His mother a sordid, fragile thing where warmth lingers.
Into the night stumbling forward
Clutching an imaginary heart,
He pretends t
Seconds to the Last MidnightOne chime of the wooden clock.
Two pairs of running feet.
Three presences in the room...
There in the shadows it lay hidden.
The little boys' hearts she could but listen.
She who was murdered bloody and young.
Would seek revenge to which she clung.
Four fists hammering the locked door.
Five inches floating above the floor.
Six shallow rasps of breath.
Tender movement across the space.
Wicked smile spread upon her face.
She hovered closer to the little boys.
Tiny things that were made her toys.
She was killed too early in life.
By the serrated slice of her father's knife.
Never leaving as the years

Please be aware that all prizes are generous "donations" of DevianART members.
Prize exchanges and distrubutions are between 'donator and winner'
after I send all prize donators winners lists.
Please be patient in receiving your prizes. Many Deviants are not online everyday.
All prize donators will be noted by end of this week.
I personally have donated as much as I already could. (subscription/arts and time)
for this contest. As much as I would like to, I will not be able to
fulfill any prize obligations from others that may not be kept. I apologize.
Time and the economy do not allow me this option.
