Wicked Imagination

Event Date and Time: 
Saturday, October 26, 2019 - 7:30pm

One spoonful of spook

A dash of youthful wonder

Mixed only on a midnight

Of lightning, rain, and thunder

 

A drop each of doom, death, and dread

An ounce of make believe

Stirred to the haunting sound

Of singing voices, barely perceived

 

At first - but then grown louder

'Til full, and rich, and strong

Brought forth by this concoction

The CMC delighting with song!
