Spooky Moonrise

As the night cools
And the winds carry messages
From ghouls
Or fools
And echoey footsteps
Approach from behind
Or around
From ghouls
Or fools
The wolves in the distance howl
As do the owls hoot
And the cats mew
With a ghoul
Or fool
Or two
Acting a fool by being a ghoul
Then silence
A snap
Or a scream
A whisper
Or a whistle
A message on the wind
I’m over here…
I’m near…
And echoey footsteps behind
As the wolves in the distance howl
A snap
A cat mews
An owl hoots
Spin again!
And through it all
In silence
A silence
Its silence
The Moon rises
The night gets cooler
Spinning turns to running
And echoey footsteps
Fade into the night
