The Haunted House

                           The Haunted House

We all think that old houses are haunted with spooky ghosts
That will jump out and scare us, but are there really ghosts
Or just our vivid fantasies of apparitions and spectres.
In books we read about ghosts resembling the headless 
Horseman in "The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow" that chased
Ichabod Crane onto a bridge, where soon after that he 
Disappeared. Well, it sounds absurd that that would 
Ever happen, so why do people think that all old houses
Come complete with a ghost? Maybe the noises people hear 
Are the house just settling for the night, there may not be any 
Supernatural occurrances at all. The ghosts seem to come with
Our imagination and the dark environment and surroundings.
There is the illusion that a tragic event may have happened
In the house, bringing on a ghostly visage, when an eathbound
Spirit may walk the house searching for it's redemption.
Spirits might have been sighted by ghost hunting groups,
Who bring with them electronic devices to search for sounds and
Visions, hoping for sightings. Some have actually seen images
Of ghostly movements, but nothing is really conclusive.
The house remains as it is - just an old house that has
Seen many families in its time, but it can never really be haunted.
