The middle line of each stanza rhyme. I haven't seen that before. You've chosen words that are quite descriptive and image building. Great Halloween theme.

    Hi Rickie. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I do like to "go with" whatever rhyme pattern feels right to me--sort of improv. I'm not a stickler for form, although I admire those who follow form to the letter. Marilyn

Wow, Marilyn, I'm telling you, this REALLY has the Halloween feel to it, the flavour. I want to read your contest entry for the Halloween poetry contest. I think this would be hard to beat!

    Hi Dawn. Thank you for your supportive review. I had already entered a poem in the contest. It was the one called, "Magic." Jewel's photo went with it. Marilyn

Wow... this is so carefully crafted and well written! First thing that grabbed my ear were all the F sounds in the first two lines, just loved that alliteration. Lots of great phrases, "trees unclothed" and " cold to marrow" and then the whole next line is fabulous! The last stanza is just terrific too! Great presentation here... I honestly wouldn't change a thing! Wonderful Halloween poem! Thank you for sharing!

Hard to believe it's almost November. Soon Christmas will be here. Time flies in old age.

Dis-ease torments ghouls, unsettled, crazed

That's me! Am I a ghoul? Or do I just feel like one? :)

    Hi Phyllis. Thank you for your review of this one. Yes, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas--they roll around quickly don't they? Kind of exciting, though. I had fun writing this poem. Halloween has so much to offer. Marilyn

    Hi Judy. I like cemeteries, too. Sounds weird. I wouldn't mind living across the street from one. I appreciate your nice review. Thank you. Marilyn

    My DREAM!! I ALWAYS wanted to live next to a cemetery. I find them peaceful.

Hi

Excellent written poem reflecting Halloween. Flowed beautifully i could picture the October full moon and the good souls quiver while those raised from the dead roam.

Great job

Regards
Tia

You set the scene here for Halloween Marilyn with the October moon and the Hallows Eve leaves, and unsettling ghouls! And ghosts lifting from their graves! Scary stuff, love Dolly x

Perfect Halloween color scheme for this poem of aba tercets about those who are easily scared by the ghosts and ghouls that visit on Halloween. This has good use of imagery.

Keep writing

Joan
