Vampire Dreams By Fern G. Z. Carr

“Ah my dear, have no fear,”

Snarled the stranger in the night,

Whose lupine eyes could mesmerize

Any creature in their sight;

“For I have only just returned

From my Transylvanian flight,

When I spied your classical beauty

By the full moon’s light,”

He whispered beguilingly,

Sharp teeth glistening bright.

Spellbound maiden hearkened to

This pallid stranger’s plight:

“As a count, it is not my custom

To be so forthright;

Although it is a pain in the neck,

I had to drop in for a bite.”


Fern G. Z. Carr is a former lawyer, teacher and past President of both the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Project Literacy Kelowna Society.
