Vampire Pumpkin Mantel

Happy Halloween to my favorite fanged fans!

via Martha Stewart

Ghoulish whispers, foggy night
Haunted cornfield, chilling fright
Open window, creaky door
Wind-whisked curtains brush the floor

Dusty mantel, flickering glow
Chandelier swaying, Scent of snow
Muslin bandage drags the dirt
Witches cackle, bloody shirt

Rusted bed frame, dusty lamp
Torn book pages cold hands clamp
Scent of pumpkins burnin’ afar
Broken acorns fill mason jar

Thistle and dried rose stems scatter
Splintered floorboard pitter-patter
Onions, ale, and carrot stew
House to field wafts wicken brew

Haunted Eve, a Halloween poem by Fresh Cut Spaces
