Day 296

22 Oct

9 Days to Halloween…

“WEBSTER was much possessed by death
And saw the skull beneath the skin;
And breastless creatures under ground
Leaned backward with a lipless grin…

He knew the anguish of the marrow
The ague of the skeleton;
No contact possible to flesh
Allayed the fever of the bone.”

Excerpt from Whispers of Immortality by T.S. Eliot
