Sleepy And Creepy

On All Hallow’s Eve

My doors are locked and curtains drawn.

All is dark and quiet around me.

I light a single oil lamp

and sit down to watch a creepy folktale

It takes place in the valley of Sleepy Hollow

an old Dutch settlement of yore

Superstitions and legends abound.

It is a tale of a school master with a most unusual name

a Mr. Ichabod Crane.

What happens to him is frightening

As he was not seen in town again.

      4. Depp portrays characters in a very eccentric way. That’s his trademark
