It’s the Friday before Halloween. Tell us the story of your ghost encounter, real or fictional.
I wrote this in 2002 and discovered it in my archives.
“There’s a tap on the door and a groan from outside”
“It is only the wind, you do not have to hide.”
“But I see through the window a face looking in”
“A reflection from the moon, it’s the usual thing”
“I hear voices that cry, and wolves that now howl
I am frightened, I must hide, something is foul”
“But wait, it is silent, all I hear is a cough
I know all is good, I switch the television off”
“The “Return of Dracula” was showing as the scene,
Do not forget, tonight is halloween.”
“And now I feel safe, but wait, there’s a tap at the door
I will open it”
“No don’t, you cannot be sure.”
And now it was quiet, no sound to be heard
A black raven sat on the house roof
A very strange bird.
