The following Hallows Eve tale has been sent in by our very own P Burlinson – Happy Halloween everyone:
Make haste, make haste, my kindred souls who slither and crawl, scamper and scurry, the moon is rising and we must hurry.
Our kin are stirring from ancient crypts and catacombs, from cobwebbed vaults and musty tombs.
We must heed our dark masters’ call, and wend our way to the Halloween ball.
In a clearing deep in the woods behold a fairies ring, an enchanted place to dance and sing.
We’ll skip and hop to the fiddlers tune, round and round the crackling fire we’ll go with Jack O lanterns all aglow.
The Devils jig, the Demons reel, faster and faster we spin and wheel.
Elves and Goblins, Imps and Sprites, Will O the Wisps and cackling crones spitting curses to chill your bones.
Ring a ring a roses, a pocket full of posies, Atishoo, atishoo we all fall down, ha, ha, ha, ha,
We’ll feast on lobsters and tickled trout, jellied eels that make you drool.
Venison and suckling pigs, the plumpest grapes and juicy figs.
