A Mid-October Night’s Dream



The lovers walk in the haunted forest 

Deviously, the fairies near begin 

Love oblivious to the torture nest

Tale of prophecy emerging within 


Spewing conflict till it is off the brink 

The fairies come upon the sleeping brood 

They unravel invisible the links 

The restless lovers wake to a new mood 

All the lovers come together, resting 


They circle all their resting prey, stalking

Unconscious of the horror infesting 

Just maybe, the spirit of fall talking 

The witches tie the links as more will come 

The incognito fairies close their home
