Halloween XLIX A.S.

Halloween XLIX A.S.

Halloween brought the first rain of the season, along with rejuvenating bone-chilling wind. King Diamond would play that night, and I wasn't about to miss it. Early in the evening, trick-or-treaters scampered by in the growing darkness as the hallow winds howled and whispered, hurrying by the Devil House.

Halloween brought The Devil's Rain...
Rejuvenation returns again
Petrichor cleansing black earth and mind
Lanterns flicker 'neath overcast skies
Hellfire dance on wicks behind carven eyes
Reflective of nightmares and dreams come alive

Haunt the land of eve eternal
Satan-Samhain from Hallow's Gate, rise infernal
Bestow the bounty of trick and of treat's surprise
A Cornucopia of Autumn delights

Cries of joy and fright
Echoed on through the night
'Neath the shadow of the Cthulhu tree
Tentacled roots creeping

Sorceries both great and small
A Demon bell, a Sabbath's call
A lightning flash, the spider's pall
The Keys are spoken by Magic thrall
