Halloween Countdown Day 1: Night Rolls In

Sun slowly sinking
Its light growing dim
Then day goes away
And the night rolls in

Air growing cooler
A willow weeping
Nocturnal creatures
Begin their creeping

Dark sky fills with stars
Moon climbs high and bright
Shines down upon us
With silver-blue light

Cemetery fog
Drifts around headstones
Oozing over graves
Chilling long-dead bones

Bare-limbed trees reach out
Snagging sleeve or shoe
Slow, timid stepping
The owl asking, “Who?”

Moaning and groaning
The chorus begins
Far off cats screeching
When the night rolls in
