Poetry Friday

Danny Elfman channels Edward Gorey...

What's This? (from the film The Nightmare Before Christmas)

Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
But look, there's nothing underneath
No ghouls, no witches here to scream and scare them
Or ensnare them, only little cozy things
Secure inside their dreamland
What's this?

The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can't be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around

I was listening to this yesterday and marveling not only at the lyrics (the entirety of which can be found here, by the way) but also the way Mr. Elfman sings them. He's unique! Inspired!

Happy Poetry Friday all ye blogmates! Don't look under the bed!

Poetry Friday is being hosted here at Becky's Book Reviews.
