4th Halloween Poem Contest – And The Winners Are… | Writer’s Treasure Chest

Colleen Chesebro ~ The Faery Whisperer

hip hip hurray

I’ve had a fabulous week! The other day I received an email from Aurora Jean Alexander (Writer’s Treasure Chest) announcing that I was a winner in her Fourth Annual Halloween Poetry Contest! I’ve included my poem, below:

“Samhain’s Song” – Etheree, Double Etheree, Etheree 

Glad
children
prepare for
Trick-or-Treat fun,
never really
knowing the truth behind
the festival of Samhain—
where the ancestors arrive home
while we wear costumes to avoid harm
confounding the good souls from the evil.

As
the Veil
thins, we see
remnants of long
lost ancestors and
the good neighbors who sing
hauntingly sweet songs of old.
For those who hear the fairies chant
countless men will agonize and wail,
all for the love of those dulcet sweet sounds.
The Samhain sun descends into the realm
of the underworld where death’s dark lord
no longer controlled by the sun,
walks on the earth unfettered.
