THE CHRISTMAS EVE WATER GHOST OF HARROWBY HALL

READ ALONG WITH STORY AT: www.StoryLinkRadio.com
The owners of Harrowby Hall had done their utmost to rid themselves of the damp and dewy lady who rose up out of the best bedroom floor at midnight, but without avail. They had tried stopping the clock, so that the ghost would not know when it was midnight; but she made her appearance just the same, with that fearful miasmatic personality of hers, and there she would stand until everything about her was thoroughly saturated.

THE WATER GHOST OF HARROWBY HALL
by John Kendrick Bangs

The trouble with Harrowby Hall was that it was haunted, and, what was worse, the ghost did not content itself with merely appearing at the bedside of the afflicted person who saw it, but persisted in remaining there for one mortal hour before it would disappear.

GHOSTS - a poem

READ ALONG AT:
www.StoryLinkRadio.com
An 1887 Victorian poem on the subject of ghosts from the darker side of humanity. 
Creatures of mist, half credited; Our faint form flings
No shadow in moonlight on the bed
We visit; noiseless is our tread,
Who come from deserts of the dead,
Where no bird sings...

GHOSTS
Anonymous from
'Ghost Stories and Presentiments'
1887

 Creatures of mist, half credited;
Our faint form flings
No shadow in moonlight on the bed
We visit; noiseless is our tread,
Who come from deserts of the dead,
Where no bird sings.

We wander there;
Pale spectres, wondrous pale and worn,
As Privet flowers at even shorn
Are pale when Phosphor fails with morn,
We who once were.

THE SHADOW IN THE SEA
by William Hope Hodgson

I went up the ladder, and walked across to where the Skipper and the Second Mate stood talking earnestly, by the rail. Tammy kept behind. As I came near to them, I caught two or three words, though I attached no meaning then to them. They were: ". . . send for him." Then the two of them turned and looked at me, and the Second Mate asked what I wanted. "I want to speak to you and the Old M—Captain, Sir," I answered. "What is it, Jessop?" the Skipper inquired. "I scarcely know how to put it, Sir," I said. "It's—it's about these—these things." "What things? Speak out, man:' he said. "Well, Sir," I blurted out. "Ther…
