Poem: A Ghost Story

Just a prohibitively pithy poem about periodic dyspathy in time for Halloween.


“Out of their dark abodes
I have roused up the screech-owls.


Through the rents
Of the gray mouldering walls they
are fled out,

Into the hated daylight–Here’st
thou them?
There seizes me a horror.”

[from King Yngurd, Adolphus Mullner
