The Art of Darkness

Dexter Kozen

Autumn’s turned the leaves to rust
The trees have fallen bare
Silver clouds enshroud the moon
A chill is in the air
Shadows of a thousand years
Rise again unseen
Voices whisper in the trees
Tonight is Halloween

On wings of mortals’ weary dreams
Across the night we’ll fly
We’ll dance among the stars unchained
Until the dawn is nigh
A year has passed away, my love
Since we’ve each other seen
Softly now and take my hand
Tonight is Halloween
