Concerto for Organ and Orchestra Op7 no1 mvt2.
|Halloween wraps fear in
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat,
Lest it overwhelm our common sense.
Our nightmares are the founts of fancy whence
We draw upon the monsters we would meet,
Eluding horrors we cannot defeat,
Enjoying the parade of our pretense
Now ranged across the night in our defense.
