Excerpt

wind sounds and sighs;
Then in the woods again it cries,

The owlet cries;
A shivering voice that calls in fright,

In maundering fright:

"Who is it, who is it, who?
Who walks with a shuffling shoe,

            'Mid the gusty trees,
            With a face none sees,
        And a form as ghostly too?
            Who, who, who!

Who is it, who is it, who?"

III

When midnight leans a listening ear

And tinkles on her insect lutes;
When 'mid the roots the cricket flutes,
And marsh and mere, now far, now near,

A jack-o'-lantern foots;
Then o'er the pool again it hoots,

The owlet hoots;
A voice that shivers as with fear,

That cries in fear:

"Who is it, who is it, who?
Who creeps with his glow-worm crew

            Above the mire
            With a corpse-light fire,
        As only dead men do?
            Who, who, who!

Who is it, who is it, who?"
