The old vacant House
sits lonely on a hill
it's empty windows
seem to bode ill will.

The wind moans softly
through it's empty halls
the only sound is an owl
that mournfully calls.

Some houses seem to live
and some say that they dream
but this house has nightmares
or so it would seem.

There is an evil ambience
that is embeded in it's walls
and sometimes foot steps
echo in it,s empty halls.

If houses do have hearts
this one would be made of stone
and whatever moves there
moves there all alone.
Bob Mitchum
