Someone birthed a solemn holy day
Put it aside a darkened holiday
Where Saints became the sorcerers
And Angels stooped to devil’s play
Holy Grail holds witches brew
Belief in superstitions grew
Antithesis of all that’s grand
Now just creaking floors atop sinking sand
dVersepoetspub.com prompt is a quadrille using the word creak. Reading the origin of halloween, it was a pagan celtic festival of honoring the dead. Christians then created All Saints Day Nov 1 in a pursuit to convert pagans.
I personally don’t celebrate halloween, but I do eat the candy, drink the cider and enjoy the harvest decorations of the season.
