All Hallow's Eve

 
Samhain
by Charles E S Fairey


The Dark Year is here again
The ghosts now among God and men,
Summer’s End, the Festival of Samhain
Dance with the dead on All Hallow’s E’en.

The dead all about in the shades
As the evening sunset light fades,
Tales of ancestors and ghosts recited
As the World’s children trick or treat delighted.

The Celtic New Year is here
The Past, Present and Future near,
Ritualistic fires lit, about we dance
From the surrounding gloom the spirits glance.

The sacred places of the Ancient
Alive with etheric energy heaven sent,
The Angels descend to their haunts
Demons clamber up and begin their taunts.

This night the dead walk the ground
Children wailing and pumpkins frowned,
As all chaos descends on the World this Night
Order only reappears with the morning light.

A candle lit to remember the dead
To their old homes their spirits are led,
Commune with the mysterious deities unseen
On this the Dark Sabbat of Samhain.

A time of death and rebirth
All otherworldly entities walk the Earth,
From the dark silence comes whisperings
Of ancients and believers new beginnings.

Second sight achieved by Magi
A time to perform Necromancy,
The Dark New Year celebrated
New energies received by the initiated,
Summer’s End, the Festival of Samhain
Dance with the dead on All Hallow’s E’en.

Halloween
by Charles E S Fairey


The Owl doth’ watcheth,
Its screech pierces through the gloom,
The trees bend and yawn,
As shrouded figures rise from the tomb.

The Yew, and its spiky green fingers,
The Church Tower, and its clock,
Chiming bells, as another victim yells
At All Hallows Eve, and its ghostly flock.

One night, all may walk the Earth,
From Heaven, Hell, and in-between,
To visit their old haunts, and homes,
While people dress to scare away the spirits,
From Here, on ghostly Halloween.
