The first third of the narrative poem – All Hallows’ Eve. I wrote it as a way to teach myself Blank Verse. There were several years between the start and the finish – though I wasn’t working on it all that time. The poem was inspired by Keats’ Hyperion. I wanted to match its length and bring blank verse back to narrative. If you hear any instructor, critic or reader bemoaning the death of narrative blank verse, send them here! It’s alive and well in me and my poems.

- I changed a line in this poem:
From: From off the floor where still its veins had bled.
To: Off the floor where still its veins bled through.
- I think this was my twentieth try at reading this. What I would really love is for an actress or another reader, a woman preferably, to give it a try. If there are any takers, and if you like the poem enough, let me know.
