night parade

Under the moon
when the coyotes cry
all the town’s children go whistling by
riding like lightning down Gulliver Lane,
hooting and howling—
a pedaling train.

  1. This reminds me of work from the gent who created the pen and ink ‘Addam’s Family.’
    One verse I remember was went something like this:
    When the moon is bright as day
    All the children come out to play…
    (but his the illustration was of all the little ‘ghouls’ and boy children- imagine Wednesday and Pugsly Addams- with headless dolls heading for the cemetery.)
