Dance Macabre

Dance macabre, to a graveyard tune
Twirl to the song of the nightshade wind
Raise you arms to the harvest moon
Be swept up in the midnight spin

Waltz to the beat of the skeleton bones
And step across the line of dream
Avoid the spots where the coffin groans
Cover your ears for the banshee’s scream.

Join hands with the ghoul and the vampire bats
Caper in the circle of the newly dead
Two-step in the crypt—mind the rats
Chat with the man with no head.

As the dead return to their tired graves
And the breeze blows past with a weary sigh
Hark to the man with the eyes like old caves
Who says that it’s time to die.
