'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menolyrical; Final Friday Fiction

En Garde! 

If e'er there were a beauty rare,
It would be the moonlit air
Of a Hallows e'en and a bulbous face,
Full in it's silvered space.

If oft'n I've thought'n about a coffin
T'was 'neath the whiten moon-grin:
Tho' ne'er of endings, neither life's close brink,
Nor sadness did I think.


If all was seen with a silver sheen,
Glistened in that lunar beam,
Then all would be peace and silence grow loud
No more maddening crowd.

If Luna's shiny bind-ery
Did other things unwind-ery,
We could wipe the glass and see then clearly
Danger which came nearly.

If you could hear all in my ear -
Voices of warning and fear -
you'd surely spin and look at me crazy,
Staring, like all's hazy!

If'n you're thinkin' that I've bin drinkin'
Point to the moon a-blinkin'.
Watch it close - feel it's heart-stringed pull;
Now say "resist", you fool!

THIS IS YOUR MEGA-RED-ALERT FOR THE SKEERYTHON!!!
Get our posts ready, according to the few guidelines, and be ready to link up at the midnight hour Indian Standard Time 30th/31st, Mon/Tue; that equates to 04:30 Tues if you are in OZ, 19:30 Mon if your are in UK, or 14:30 EDT Mon in the USA...the rest you'll have to work out for yourselves!

So, brush off your pointy hats, dust off your webs, shake out your broomsticks and get your pumpkins in order... (*ahem!*)

    If you could hear all in my ear -
    Voices of warning and fear -

      hmmmmm nooooo...; my bloggies are on Indian time which will be nine hours ahead of Eastern USA, so that will be 3PM for you - but it doesn't matter if it's later than that, just not before, else my own post will not be up!

      LOVE YOUR ADDED VERSE &*> YAM xx
