      This sounds pretty serious. First up, make sure the remainder of your poems are safe. Second, you can report the poem. You will have to probably have to prove to the poem hunter administration tha ... more

    a little Halloween fun...

    Halloween Stroll

    Crackle, crackle
    Dusty shadows
    Crunch and cackle
    Follow hollow
    Pounding footsteps

    Cracks of thunder
    Broken branches
    Over, under
    Snap and scream
    Spooky Doppler

    The Big Bopper
    Sings Chantilly lace
    And a pretty face
    But I digress
    As trees undress

    On this unholy
    Wooded path
    To who knows where
    I stroll and stare
    At the murky water

    The misted river
    Seems to swerve
    Around the curve
    Of my pretty neck
    As I do swear

    This wretched dream
    Will be my last trek
    Unnerved through this
    Forest preserve
    On Halloween

    Right now, at this very moment (well, since it's PoemHunter, it was about 30 minutes ago) there is ONE person from Italy on this site. I wonder who that person is?ONE FREAKING guy in Italy is perusing the pages of PoemHunter at this exact point in time. Relatively speaking, that is. What's his name?Giuseppe?Maybe it's Fredrico Fellini's grandson. That would be cool. " Yo! Giuseppe! Your Grandpa made killer movies! Stop with the garlic already, huh! ?"

    A poem about Lonliness written by Trumbull stickney read today in this poemhunter.com. and found it very beautiful . While the biography read it is understood that he was an eminent student and man of great knowledge. I liked the poem.
