Night has fallen and the land is still
But not for long, as night creatures will
Take their turn to roam the land
Make their own noise, play in their band
But there are some places they will not comb
Other things happen wherever there’s a tomb.
A haunting song begins to play
Something of a signal that says OK
It’s safe to come out now and have some fun
Let’s party all night, until we see the sun
But not all are in the party mood
Like that lonely girl in the black hood.
The music continues all through the night
The ghostly couples dance in the pale moonlight
One breaks off and approaches the girl
He offers his hand, asking for a swirl
She slowly agrees, revealing raven locks
He promises to stay until the crow of the cocks.
She places her hand into his
The two so close that they could kiss
As he leads her across the ground
Every now and then spinning her around
Keeping in time to the beat of the tune
Their only light coming from the moon.
They continue dancing all through the night
Their only focus on each other, illuminated by moonlight
Not a word passed between them as they swayed
But then not a word was needed to be said
Dancing together was all that was needed
Until the crows of the cocks had to be heeded.
The music slowly comes to a stop
And ghosts return to their graves without a pop
All except the boy lingering with the girl
As his fingers play with each little curl
He gives her a kiss that marks the end of their fun
As both disappear under the rays of the sun.
