A Poem by Emily Shade


A cold storm sundered the darkness,
The beasts were gaunt and loathed;
A void, as of a specter's crypt,
Hid land from view.

The beasts beckoned on the graves
And beckoned in the hellfire,
And shook their swords and gnashed their teeth,
And threatened with their dark fangs.

The night dark, the creatures arose;
The corpse's lost eyes
Turned slowly to his feared graveyard,
And hatred was forever!
