as the hounds’ harsh howls

piercingly penetrate the mist masking the magic

of the neverending nebulous night.

Harry, Harriet, and Haddie hold hands

as they hide hushed with heavy hearts

behind the big broad bed’s backboard

in the commodious corner contemplating and calculating

 an impending escape although an appraisal of the

scary situation seemingly shouted silent seriousness

of the maniacal malicious muted moment.

High on the hill, the Headless Horseman halted his horse…
