Devil Lake


Through gaping canyons
Within black hills
Aglow with some strange light
Is a place enchanted
With wonder and with fright

Journey into The Hellmouth
Of the murky lake
Floating from within the fog
The spechters and the wraiths
Welcome you with open arms
To this haunted place

Its beauty shimmers in the day
Beckoning you all
But legends told unknown to some
Unfirl when dusk falls...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Devil Lake seems an idyllic location at first glance, but when the sun goes down, and night spreads its cloak across the land, all manner of darksome legend emerges to terrify and tantalize.
