A Gibbous Moon on Halloween Night,

Guides the way of the Wiccan’s flight.

Ascending upon the first stroke of Midnight,

 With a cackle of laughter from high in the sky,

In a swirl of withered leaves, off they fly!

Veiled in phantom grey clouds,

and darkest nightmare shrouds.

Twiggy broom and pointed black hat,

A howl and a hiss of an ebony cat.

These are the harbingers of this eventide,

Oh, search if you will, there is nowhere to hide.
