Excerpt

Swamp Demons

By C. A. BUTZ

The lights that wink across the sodden moor

Like phosphorescent eyes that beckon men
To risk fell footsteps in the treacherous fen,
And sink in loathsome muck, without a spoor--
What ghosts of former days, what dread allure,

Abides within this subterranean den?
Or, reaching out, snares victims to its ken,
With wraith-like fingers, to a peril sure?

'Tis told that evil things lurk out of sight

With human bones that fester in the ooze;
Belike 'tis true, these bones that once were clothed In fleshly form now harbor deadly spite

Against the living, and this swamp still brews
Within its bubbling depths the curse men loathed

Before they turned to leprous Things of Night!
