Ghosts of October

When the rooster goes to crow
  all the ghosts must start to go 
back to their cold graves below.

Unless it's October 
when the fog leaves slower 
the ghost may stay over.

 Autumn fog is so thick
 to the spirits it may trick 
into believing daylight wont stick. 

 Though they may share the day
 while the sunlight's away
 at night they all play

For in the dark they grow bright 
with the chill of deathly fright
 as pumpkins grin into the night.

But where are the living to stay 
when the ghost walk the day
 and chase warm souls away?

We'll pray they'll remember 
to return to the grave come November 
and rest till leaves burn again like an ember.


  1. It chilled me yet warmed me on a brisk Autumn day.
    Great spirit October where the ghosts of old play

    1. What a lovely reply. Brought a tear to my eye!

  2. I love the effect the lights gives the ghost. Nice and creepy.
