Poetry: Hallowe’en

poetryHallowe’en

Hallowe’en begins with the ringing of the bells

Celebration for our long since dead

The ringing bells

Expel those whom seek to harm

Candles light the windows

Reflecting dancing flames

Warding off witches

Burning ‘til midnight

Keeping evil influences at bay

The streets are filled

Row on row

They walk with torches of straw

Lighting souls through purgatory

Those who linger between heaven and hell

The end of summer

Connects us to the next world

The veil

So thin

You can feel a breath

From a love long since dead

Hallowe’en

The candles are lit

The hearthstones are swept

The candles glow red

We welcome and rejoice

The return of our beloved dead
