Ghost

Dark  the  night  as  the lonely  soul takes  flight

Cold the wind that moans.Huddled together in fright

Caught by  the  night  children out alone on  the  moor

She  watches  their  progress  as  she has  done before.

 

Large  is  the  moon with it’s  silver  grey  light

As it runs  from  the  sun  and her  gold rays so bright.

So bound up  and lost is  she in a hell  all her  own

Yet  still  she  needs  to  guide  those  innocent  children  home.

Wandering ghost  so  sad  what  did  you  do  that  was  so  bad

Maybe  nothing but regret  for the  children  you never had.

Did  you  go  to your grave  you  wishes  undone  and unfulfilled

That  now  you  spend  your time  watching over  innocents and  doing  no  ill.

    Wonderful poem, Willow! You have quite a way with words and how you put them together so poetically. 🙂

    Absolutely wonderful, and a bit tragic, but she guides the children now. 🙂 Wonderful descriptions of the night!

    I wasn’t going to read this before bed as I’m afraid of ghosts. But it certainly took a different turn which is great.
    Sleep tight! xx
