This Halloween time of year reminds me of when we were kids and could scare ourselves over the smallest things as we played outside. Of course, I think there might have been a bit of help from my older sister. The challenge at Real Toads today is to write a poem inspired by the season or a poem form known as Melancholia. It has a syllable count and rhyme scheme that is completely explained at the Real Toads site. There you’ll also find more poems written in this style.
walking through the cemetery
glancing towards a dark night sky
through I try
fear runs free scaring me
as I start to cry
I see through darkness of night
a candle shining bright
