Chapter 13 of the book Bewitching Halloween
An a-b-a-b Halloween poem
"Thirty-One Days' Revelry" by BeasPeas

To affirm witches' worth,
surrendering to magic's curse,
a new season bursts forth
in the chill of October first.

What will autumn portend,
when warmth is gone from nighttime skies?
Will wicked chills descend,
as daylight flickers in demise?

Clocks fall behind a beat,
rendering eves blackly coolish,
foretelling change from heat
and voices cackingly ghoulish.

Come witches' tour de force
in thirty-one days' revelry,
All Hallows' runs its course
and satisfies foul devilry.
