Excerpt

abysmo grande se tornava!
Lisboa nunca viu tão triste dia;
Perdida toda a gente se julgava;
As casas, sacudidas, oscilavam
E pelo gran' tremor se esmoronavam!

II

O cataclismo nada respeitava;
Palacios, templos, casas destruia,
E nos tristes destroços abysmava
Os miseros que n'elles envolvia.
Uma desgraça tal ninguem poupava
Á grande mortandade, que fazia:
E sob as cantarias deslocadas
As gentes expiravam sepultadas.

III

Em mui breves momentos... a cidade
O mais lugubre quadro apresentava.
Os habitantes, cheios d'anciedade
Que tamanho terror lhes inspirava
E de Deus supplicando, em vão, piedade,
Fugiam para a rua, onde reinava
Na triste, apavorada multidão
A mais indiscriptivel confusão.

IV

Abandonando as casas procuravam
Immersos nã

Alexie Aaron
Alexie Aaron's popular Haunted Series was born from her memories of fleeting shapes rushing around doorways, an heirloom chair that rocked itself, cold feelings of mysterious dread, and warm feelings from the traces of loved ones long gone. As our Author of the Day, Aaron talks about how she fell in love with her characters, tells us more about The Hauntings of Cold Creek Hollow and shares some of her own personal paranormal experiences.
