Daily Prompt – Bayou

The whispers only outnumber the will ‘o wisps down in the bayou…

Birthright - Down on the Bayou

Down In the Bayou
by Michael Romani

Whisper, whisper just loud enough 
And behind your listening ear
It's that tingle of anticipated fear
Like the leaves falling this time of year
Oh my pretties, it is your birthright
That will trick your treat on Halloween night
It's the hayride out under the full moon
When you know the Queen of Bayou is coming soon
It's the small scenes that set the mood
If the stage fright, goose bumps don't intrude
The Queen offers three doors to choose from
In her cypress darkened bit of a kingdom
Faith in the things of fate, mind or heart
Are the choices given us and have been from the start
