As evening settled down,
And finally nodded as I stood,
While shades of night drew 'round.
And so I sank beneath the spell,
As shadows o'er me crept;
And visions, ghast and terrible,
Appalled me as I slept.
'Tis curious how one cries aloud,
Not knowing he doth sleep;
Tormented by a phantom crowd
His mind alone doth keep.
Or are these grimly phantoms real,
That visit us by night?
Invisible to waking eyes,
Yet seen by darkling sight.
