Cracked Ice.

By foggytwo
Twas a cold Otober the thirty first.
With a fog, one could easily slice.
When I came upon this frozen pond.
Containing a mosaic of ice.
I pondered by the icy edge.
If the shortcut I should trust.
To step upon the unsafe ice.
Which didn`t look too robust.
As my best foot I put forward.
Having just held back in time.
Then a loud crack from the ice pack.
Suddenly a face in a rapid climb.
Peering through the ice,she let out a moan.
Which scared me half to death.
It was then the lady spoke to me.
Which really took my breath.
She was the ghost of a certain Nan Fiskin.
Accused of being a witch.
She was burned alive at the village green.
Then thrown into a drainage ditch.
She cursed this pond where she ended up.
Pulling her down before she was done.
So she haunts this pond for evermore.
And has done since 1701.
After Nan had told her tale.
I`d forgot about the time.
Then she slowly slipped away.
A victim of arganized crime.
I will never forget that cold,cold night.
The night of October thirty first.
When Nan popped up for a little chat.
To tell me we were all cursed.
