THE LEGEND OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN

 

THE LEGEND OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN


They say he rides at night…

through dimly lit moonlight

on a white horse named Midnight

Through the cemetery

                 galloping over the headstones

amongst sounds of cries and moans…

He roams…

wearing a black, flowing cape

searching for his bride among the dead

He is a sight, with his sword and no head

He hears her crying, sobbing…and sighing

They say he will never stop trying...

to find his one true love

And at the stroke of midnight

on a dark and moonless night

                                when it is raining…

you may catch a glimpse of him

on his white horse named Midnight

wielding his sword…

deathly determined…

riding swiftly through the night

He might just give you a fright

If you haven’t met…

The Headless Horseman

 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Hello, dear Sister of the Light~!!.....Ahhhhhhh, you have given us a GREAT glimpse of the Headless Horseman, poor fellow~!!  You have chilled the bones of the readers and brought to life, quite intriguingly, the Legend of the countryside~!!  Yes, is Halloween not the most delicious topic to write about??...Love it~!
Thanks for sharing.....Margaret, who steers clear when she hears hoofbeats~!

Mary,

   Without a head I always wondered how he could see,

hmmm...

unless a ghost has senses we can't see! 

And that's scary!

 

Happy Halloween,

 

Jamieson

I like this but as Mary Lou says The font is hard to read lager is better here I think

Whoa! What a dark and scary sight. I've always been terrified of headless horsemen on white horses named Midnight! There's no where to hide!

 

The font is a little hard to read, Mary. Maybe a larger size would help? ML
