Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Blair, Glynn, &C: Collated With the Best Editions

Again the screech-owl shrieks: ungracious sound! I'll hear no more; it makes one's blood run chill. Quite round the pile, a row of reverend elms, (coeval near with that) all ragged show, Long lash'd by the rude winds. Some rift half down Their branchless trunks, others so thin a-top, 'l'hat scarce two crows could lodge in the same tree. Strange things, the neighbours say, have happen'd here Wild shrieks have issued from the hollow tombs Dead men have come again, and walk'd about; And the great bell has toll'd, unrung, untouch'd. (such tales their cheer, at wake or gossiping, When it draws near the Witching time of night.) 0ft in the lone church-yard at night I've seen, By glimpse of moonshine chequering through the trees, The school-boy, with his satchel in his hand, Whistling aloud to hear his courage up, And lightly tripping o'er the long ?at stones, (with nettles skirted, and with moss o'ergrown,) That tell in homely phrase who lie below. Sudden he starts, and hears, or thinks he hears, The sound of something purring at his heels Full fast he ?ies, and dares not look behind him, Till out of breath he overtakes his fellows Who gather round, and wonder at the tale Of horrid apparition, tall and ghastly, That walks at dead of night, or takes his stand some new-open'd grave; and (strange to tell Evanishes at crowing of the cock. The new-made widow, too, I've sometimes 'spied, Sad sight! Slow moving o'er the prostrate dead Listless, she crawls along in doleful black.
