Eddie Morales started writing poetry in High School, where he was fi rst introduced to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, and Edna St. Vincent Millay, his three favorite poets today, forty years later. In between then and ten years ago, a span of thirty years, he saw a great decline in the area of rhyming poetry. No one rhymed anymore. Today, the beautiful art of rhyme is practically non-existent. Some established poets still rhyme, but you rarely see the works in print. Twelve years ago, Morales attended his fi rst convention, and he was hooked forever on poetry. Although the poems presented were free verse, he listened carefully as he heard many of the poets attending, year after year, express concerns in regards to rhyming poetry. The public clamored for rhyming poetry, but the established poets were not forthcoming. This presented a great opportunity for change, and there was hope for the return of rhyming poetry. And so, a few years ago, Morales published his fi rst book, A Reason For Rhyme, and later published, The Suicide Sonnets. In his third book of poetry, presented here, Count Edweird Lefang’s Rhymin’ Halloween, Morales combines the art of rhyme, utilizing the numerous rhyming forms used by famous poets of the past and present, with humorous and serious fl air that teachers and students as well as the public can all enjoy.
