Nymphs in the moonlight ever after

with 5 comments

The dance goes on
forever and ever
in the moonlight
in the garden
in the hearts
of the dancers
even after
the moonlight
and the garden
and the hearts
of the dancers
have faded away
forever and ever

The Gazebo

with 6 comments

The gazebo in the moonlight… how romantic… or… actually, I always thought they were a bit spooky at night, a bit chilling. The monsters could definitely get you with no trouble. Zombies, mummies, werewolves, and of course both Dracula and Frankenstein.

The first time I ever heard the word pronounced was in an old movie I don’t recall the name of. And the actress called it a ga-zay’-bow… and I just loved the sound of that, how it filled up my mouth and rolled off my tongue. Try it – you’ll never go back to boring old ga-zee-bow.

The Swamp Down the Road

with 4 comments

This swamp was a couple of miles down the road from my house. If you were coming home on your bicycle from the pool, which was another 3-4 miles further, you’d have to come this way. It was scary even when there were 3 or 4 of us – but all too often I’d find myself stealing past it alone, walking the bike because I was  terrified of being snatched off my seat as I rode.

It was just plain scary – even though I’d never even heard rumours of anything bad happening. No bodies, no mummies, no werewolves or axe murderes. Still I heard the screams and howls – and don’t go telling me they were just owls and hound dogs baying at the moon. You weren’t there.
