Reputed To Be haunted

Reputed to be haunted she took their silly dare She didn't believe the stories of a ghost that wandered there The house had been a rental but no one stayed for long And neighbour's started whispering that something there was wrong Six years it's now stood vacant and the grounds are overgrown And sometimes at the witching hour you'll hear a ghostly moan With flashlight and a cell phone, she entered the old house Then shrieked as it ran past her; a tiny little mouse Her phone was set on filming as she checked the ground floor first A cobweb gently brushed her cheek, she jumped and softly cursed She started up a flight of stairs to film the second floor But quickly bolted straight back down at the loud bang of a door Although she didn't see a ghost the mouse and the door were enough And so her short adventure there went on to fuel more stuff

A spooky story ~ that girl is braver than me! Your poem is fun to read, Anne. Old houses seem to draw us to them.
