Samhain (cyhydedd fer sonnet)

by Sioranth

Age Group: Adult



Mortals bent at their tricks and treats
do not heed owl's forewarning shriek.
The witching hour is not for fools,
but ancestors, not ghost or ghoul.
The veil is frail this gusty night
with starry sky, no moon in sight.
Bonfire is lit; pumpkin is carved.
Harvest feast set with welcome arms.
But be chary with warded care
to beware fae with puckish air
and keep your mummer’s guise in place
lest you end being victim chased.
Never to fear as dawn draws near,
this day occurs just once a year.




Author's Notes: This is my first and probably only attempt at cyhydedd fer sonnet. So many rules! I'm a free spirit! :) But it was a fun challenge to myself and I'm sort of happy okayish with how it turned out. It was just for fun and I am so not a serious poet so I'm fine with the fact that it may not be OCD perfect. lol Anyway, it's my take on the Celtic roots of our modern-day Halloween.
