"From Ghoulies and Ghosties, And long-leggity Beasties, And all Things that go bump in the Night, Good Lord deliver us."

 

 

 


Thirteen O'Clock
Kenneth Fearing


Why do they whistle so loud, when they walk past the graveyard late at night?
Why do they look behind them when they reach the gates?
Why do they have any gates?  Why don't they go through the wall?
But why, O why, do they make that horrible whistling sound?

GO AWAY, LIVE PEOPLE, STOP HAUNTING THE DEAD

If they catch you, it is said, they make you rap, rap, rap on a table all night,

And blow through a trumpet and float around the room in long white veils,
While they ask you, and ask you:  Can you hear us, Uncle Ted?
Are you happy, Uncle Ted?  Should we buy or should we sell?
Should we marry, Uncle Ted?
What became of Uncle Ned, Uncle Ted, and is he happy,
and ask him if he knows what became of Uncle Fred?

KEEP AWAY, LIVE PEOPLE, KEEP FAR AWAY,
STAY IN THE WORLD'S OTHER WORLD WHERE YOU REALLY BELONG.
YOU WILL PROBABLY BE MUCH HAPPIER THERE.

And who knows, what they are hunting for, always looking,
looking, looking with sharp bright eyes where they ought to have sockets?
Whoever saw them really grin with their teeth?
Who knows why they worry, or what they scheme, with a brain where there should
be nothing but good, damp air?

STAY AWAY, LIVE PEOPLE, STAY AWAY,
YOU MEAN NO HARM, AND WE AREN'T AFRAID OF YOU, AND WE DON'T
BELIEVE SUCH PEOPLE EXIST,
BUT WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?  WHO DO YOU WANT?
WHO?  WHO?  WHO?  O WHO?

 

  Click the house to see the pics take at the Mansfield Reformatory in Ohio.  I make no claims as to the veracity of these photos as they are not mine, however, I do know the photographer and know they haven't been faked.   Most of these pictures are bitmaps so the page is slow to load, please be patient.  One of these days I PROMISE to change the format.

TRUE STORIES!  This is an ongoing project of mine.  I've asked folks to send me stories of true hauntings that have happened to them or someone they know.   After reading some of them maybe you'll have one to send to me!  PLEASE NO URBAN LEGENDS!!  I do NOT publish names or screen names and the stories appear exactly as they were sent to me.
