A Haunted House

cobweb draperies
mouldering plaster walls
a phantom's home


dusty zephyrs
strange shuffling movements
spectral stirrings


creaking wooden stairs
groaning oaken timbers
unnatural sounds


drifting shadow
soft footsteps in the hall
ghostly presence


an eldritch chill
diabolical whispers
a fell haunting


dark apparitions
dreadful macabre visions
a mortal's fright


wailing spectres
clattering skeletons
midnight revelries
