10 Classically Creepy Poems for Halloween

haunted poem

When Athens, sung in verse and prose, caught all the World's imagination; when Ilion fell, and Rome arose, and Time went on like pagination: Who but the Insult was the leveler; Deliverer and bedeviler? Perhaps he heard strange footsteps, neither far away nor near— echoing footsteps, neither slow nor quick, alternating, eternal. Dunbar's poem is well contrived, and, though the forcefulness of the protest is somewhat mitigated by the legendary trappings, the poet in any event succeeded in imbuing the story with the mysterious atmosphere that envelops the punitive raids of the Ku Klux Klan. Then again i do get the best of paranormal events happening to me all the time and brush it off with a laugh, like a whistle mimicking spirit after taking a poop. Never seraph spread a pinion Over fabric half so fair! Japanese people are really good when it comes with Urban Legends e. The waves will never rape her, nor take her at their leisure; the sea gulls shall not have her, nor could she give them pleasure.

37 Halloween Poems

haunted poem

After discussing the wit and wisdom of the king, and song and beauty in the kingdom: But evil things, in robes of sorrow, Assailed the monarch's high estate. There are more guests at table than the hosts Invited; the illuminated hall Is thronged with quiet, inoffensive ghosts, As silent as the pictures on the wall. Later, he produced its first American translation. They seek the white stag on a moonlit moor, or Torc Triath, the fabled boar, or Ysgithyrwyn, or Twrch Trwyth, the other mighty boars of myth. There is the western gate, Luke Havergal— Luke Havergal. Even ghosts they desert me I thought After they'd gone They'd never even heard of a sorrow so deep Or a pain as sharp as mine. We have no title-deeds to house or lands; Owners and occupants of earlier dates From graves forgotten stretch their dusty hands, And hold in mortmain still their old estates.

The Haunted Oak by Paul Laurence Dunbar

haunted poem

I shall tell you tales of battles fought of knightly quests that come to naught Of freedoms dream so bravely sought and of lives laid down to find it. We felt dead winds above us stir; And in the darkness heard A voice fall, singing, cloying sweet, Heavily dropping, though that heat, Heavy as honeyed pulses beat, Slow word by anguished word. Down past the seven mountains and seven rivers of hell— the solitary journey of sweet little Tomino. And ever the man he rides me hard, And never a night stays he; For I feel his curse as a haunted bough, On the trunk of a haunted tree. Under the mantle of this world The thickness of the storm clouds Perpetual, thorough Meeting the foam crest of the waves Dark enough to hide intentions Walking along the tired rocky shore A stretch common, tasteless to all but the vaguest sense Some spray, felt deep along the sides of the tongue The sobering corpse, I found Still clawing at the stones I can feel the tears well in my eyes There is nothing I can do Empathetic thoughts blow through my mind Cold strains of tainted breath His voice is cold air, so dissimilar And with every trace of dogma Such overused platitudes Yet I hold fast to that stringent emotion He knows me He knows what I used to be, and what brought me to who I am I watch him He tries to pry, bone exposed at the fingertips Why did this come to me Remorse Filled with pity, I bend down I comfort him The host burst And now I feel it Moving though the back of my skull It's tendrils become rooted The eyes see though my own And it swallows what It will The desperate remains inside me scream at it But it's just rotten flesh And there's nothing left for me Now and forever Screaming midnight chimes, hidden alibis illuminate your crimes, ferule moonlit beams of light, recoil in the shadows, glowing in white, shaking soul in the twilight zone, kicking up dust as you run for home, emotions take you by the hand, scatter away like the desert sand, cold trip in a purple haze, eaten away in the last of these days, haunted, we are all haunted, ghosts of the past gnaw at our thoughts, searching in vane for safer ports.

“Tomino’s Hell” by Saijō Yaso

haunted poem

Not just on some empty whim Is flesh pierced with blood-red pins: they serve as hellish signposts for sweet little Tomino. When flocks are folded warm, And herds to shelter run, He sails above the storm, He stares into the sun. I wake when the shadows have fallen and walk when the memories cease When purpose in life has no meaning and only the wicked find peace. The heart that cries—let it but hear Its sweet love answering, Or out of ether one faint note Of living comfort wring. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Short Haunted Poems

haunted poem

He trod the trail where'er it turned By many a mound and scree, And still the barefoot track led on, And an angry man was he. She took me to her Elfin grot, And there she wept and sighed full sore, And there I shut her wild wild eyes With kisses four. I was in a sleepover with my friends. I sat there all alone in the silent house With not a whisper, no! Her blood made of fire and ice. There is the western gate, Luke Havergal, There are the crimson leaves upon the wall, Go, for the winds are tearing them away,— Nor think to riddle the dead words they say, Nor any more to feel them as they fall; But go, and if you trust her she will call. I have been her kind.

It is no longer published so some copies in good condition are going for a high price. Come Lord and Lift by Come Lord, and lift the fallen bird Abandoned on the ground; The soul bereft and longing so To have the lost be found. Listen David,if the curse of Tomino no Jigoku is anywhere near real it means there is specific way of activating it. At once a voice arose among The bleak twigs overhead In a full-hearted evensong Of joy illimited; An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small, In blast-beruffled plume, Had chosen thus to fling his soul Upon the growing gloom. The final poem is not a spooky Halloween Poem as such but was written by Richard Jones on the Hill of Tara in Ireland. But in November 1835, during a second trip to Europe, Longfellow's life was shaken when his wife died during a miscarriage. When books, in numberless infinities, cross-fertilize the teeming brain, and warring, vex the Soul with Vanities, and Insults hurtle, Insults rain: Who but the Insult is the leveler; Deliverer and bedeviler?

Where were they all not twenty years ago? No one has to believe me unwillingly. I blink no glittering eye Between tufts of gray sea mosses Nor in the high road ply My trade of guilts and glosses. His wailing desperation echoes throughout hell— a fox peony opens its golden petals. Be careful where you step: the grave is wide. Mine, as whom washed from spot of childbed taint Purification in the Old Law did save, And such, as yet once more I trust to have Full sight of her in Heaven without restraint, Came vested all in white, pure as her mind.

The Haunted Oak by Paul Laurence Dunbar

haunted poem

As she was reading the page she suddenly noticed that she accidentally made some reading mistakes. Then for the house that is no more a house, But only a belilaced cellar hole, Now slowly closing like a dent in dough. And darkness shot across the sky, And once, and twice, we heard her cry; And saw her lift white hands on high And toss her troubled hair. At the time, this required a certain courage. Sadly I never found this village and the people around was a little scary about it, japanese people are really supersitious about that kind of thing. In ancient times people feared this night, The night they greeted with fright.
