Of the grave’s delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they – it is they.

Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.
– Sir Francis Bacon
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
– Emily Dickinson
Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon’s silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
– Joel Benton
