Eli Murray.

By foggytwo
Thanks to everyone for the comments on my last upload.
Here is my Halloween offering which is best viewed large.

On a visit by night to St. Andrews.
Round the back of the Monastery wall.
To the south side of the ruins.
Stands a gate nearly ten feet tall.
Inside stands a modern cemetery.
So I popped in to have a look see.
What I saw at the top of the pathway.
Made me go in there A.S.A.P.
Stood at the top was a mound of grass.
Inside, a crypt with stairs leading down.
No door to be found at the entrance.
Inside it was a dark greyish brown.
After going downstairs to the doorway.
I looked inside, but nothing to see.
But I did hear some movement from in there.
So it was right back upstairs for me.
At the top of the stairs, etched into a stone.
It read, "Eli Murray, laid `ere to rest".
Twas then that a howl came from inside.
The noise was like something possessed.
I glanced down the stairs to the doorway.
A ghostly figure returned my stare.
Once again he made a loud moaning noise.
You could not call this gent debonair.
I grabbed a quick pic with me camera.
I beat the shutter back to the car.
Out of St. Andrews I headed that night.
To the graveyard I said au revoir.
If you should ever visit St. Andrews.
Drive through the archway, about halfway down.
The cemetery awaits you, just on the left.
Inside, the mound with the crypt in the ground.

As the time of the spooks draws nigh
And pictures abound of the dead
Most just make me give a big sigh
But your picture filled me with dread!

Hello weeny greeny eye,
Just dropped in to say good bye.
I leave the house for Halloween,
When I'm back I'll tell you where I've been.
Don't like other ghosts to visit me,
With only you I want to be.

Your comment is very welcome Pamela, cheers for the verse.

Of one thing Pamela you are correct.
The time for spooks is quite near.
Also witches and wizards are on the move.
And some trick `n treaters` I hear.

Thank you for your comment and verse Johanna, love it.

Weeny Greeny eye, alais Eli Murray.
Certainly gave me a fright.
From out the crypt he moaned and groaned.
Then he hovered left and right.
