Haunting All Souls' Night

This is a mix of The Ghost Train poem by slbrail87, All Soul's Night song by Loreena McKennitt and The Dong with the Luminous Nose poem by Edward Lear (found in Utter NonSense, book sent to me by Steve, aka Strussler ;-) )


When awful darkness and silence reign

Over the great Gromboolian plain,

Through the long, long wintry nights;

When Storm-clouds brood on the towering heights...


Somewhere in a hidden memory

Images float before my eyes

Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires

Dancing 'til the next sunrise.


Then, through the vast and gloomy dark,

There moves what seems a fiery spark,

Piercing the coal-black night,

A meteor strange and bright:


The wind is full of a thousand voices

They pass by the bridge and me.

The witching hour is close at hand

So don't be out alone.


Shades lurk within the ancient woods

For it is All Souls' Night

And those who are dead travel fast;

Their groans fill one with fright.


I can see the lights in the distance

Trembling in the dark cloak of night

Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing

A waltz on All...All Souls Night.


Awaking sleeping dead

They left all things behind

Except for sins done in their lives,

Forever chains that bind.


In that endless, darkest hour, hold back your fear

As the rooster crows announcing day's dawn

The weary, naked souls vanish in despair

But they never fail to come back every year




To enhance the mood, take a look at these haunted memories, these are some twisted and wicked images!
