Beware (Carry on tuesday)(Revised, I shouldn’t be allowed to write late at night)

Thomas C. Fedro
Beware of eyes glow red in dark,
Of cries of wolves with howling bark,
Thoughts of scamps wearing dresses tight,
That blind your mind from morning light,
Come away from asp’s sweet perfume,
In hidden dens of darkened rooms,
The dawn comes quick to bathe your mind,
Night is plotting to steal your rhyme.
NOTE:  The prompt this week at Carry on Tuesday is the line, “Beware of thoughts that come in the night.”  I used each word to start a sentence.

    Wow, this is just wonderful, like the line"Night is plotting to steal your rhyme" very much.The pictures on your blog are very pleasing, the big tree and the one in this poem as well.

  2. That was interesting take on the prompt, Henry. A great one, I like the idea of the acrostic in your own version. Above all I just love the words you used, the spooky imagery, I like that kind of poetry….especially when you named the asp's perfume…it´s a fiction I can relate to…in a (wolfy) way 🙂

  3. This is AWESOME! (I fear I may be sounding like a broken record on my visits here!) Love the easy way in which the words simply roll of the tongue. The rhyme is perfection (I do so love the rhyme!) and I thought your take on the prompt brilliant! Bravo!
