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.
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?
