Haunting

I couldn’t believe that sight.
My skin’s as white as a pall;
it gave me such a fright.

It almost seemed a trick of the light
save for the shadows on the wall.
I couldn’t believe that sight.

Ghosts, goblins, and a wight
strolling boldly with visible gall.
It gave me such a fright.

I followed and watched their evening rite –
I couldn’t resist that phantom call.
I couldn’t believe that sight.

And as the ceremony reached its height
their voices shook the very walls.
It gave me such a fright.

I hear their revelry each night
the echoes of their spectral ball.
I couldn’t believe that sight;
it gave me such a fright.
