For All-Hallows Eve

One of my favorite spooky poems is the classic by Poe... I mean can you really beat Poe when it comes to getting you in the mood for All-Hallows Eve?

"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,

Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -

Only this, and nothing more. . ."

"The Raven" by

Edgar Allan Poe

To listen to this poem in all its haunting glory, check out this reading by British actor Basil Rathbone, I can feel the chills already crawling up my spine! Click this Link
