The Collectors

One year I went to a Halloween party and I got to take part in the best treasure hunt ever- here is a poem about one of the clues we were supposed to find:
Would you visit a cemetery on Halloween?
Would you touch the headstones, walk across or around the graves?
Would you visit it  a cemetery on Halloween  just as the shade fell from the trees?
If you visit a cemetery on Halloween, would you know what to do if you heard something creak from beneath your feet?
Would you pretend you hadn’t heard anything, would you keep walking slow
or would you look at your watch and say to no one, ” Look at the time I have to go”?
Would you visit a cemetery on Halloween
and look for your name carved in stone?
