Abyss & Apex : Fourth Quarter 2006

Best Be Ware

Rie Sheridan Rose

 

 

The marrow bones
rattle
in the wind
tonight—

and on the
vast moor,
something howls….

They say the
Hunt
will ride
tonight—

searching for
souls
to harvest
like grapes.

Best be ware
and lock
the bairns
in the cupboards.

‘Tis an
evil wind
that carries
the cry of
the horn

and
all heads
turn
when the
Hunt
rides by.
