In the Graveyard

I remember I roamed on that night - as a sceptic, I thought it was fun, but received such a terrible fright, when I spotted the ghost of the nun. In the midst of the yard was a tomb, and she hovered beside it and wailed, that I sensed her a portent of doom,  and my heart (that was strong) almost failed as I counted the number of souls, and the eyes of those spirits were red. What a stench as they rose from the holes to escape from the house of the dead! I was praying and crying in fear; but by morning I blamed it on beer... written 23rd February for Julia's Ghost contest
