The Midnight Rider

Here’s one of my first poems. I was inspired by the Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow. This was written back in 2006 when I was in first year high school. It was for our English class. I hope you guys enjoy reading it.

Midnight Rider

You can hear them running and screaming

While he is cutting and slashing

The whole town shakes with fright

As he rides all through the night


They say he rides a horse that’s black

And a heart is one thing he lacks

They say he wears a red cape

And when he sees you there is no escape


People first saw him 200 years ago

Where it all started is one thing I don’t know

Every night he starts his quest to find her

Thus the never ending quest of the midnight rider


Haven’t written anything in a while, and I know I have a lot to improve on. What should I write about next?
