Halloween Countdown, Day 29

Celebrating its 17th year, "Out ov the Coffin" is hosted by the fabulous D.J. Ichabod. What was born as a means of spreading dark and esoteric music to the Nashville area via WRVU, broadcasting from my graduate alma mater, Vanderbilt University (Go 'Dores!), is now an spine-tingling and atmospheric podcast. Check it out for some perfect seasonal music! You won't be sorry.

"Voices in the Air" by Thomas Lovell Beddoes

As sudden thunder
Pierces night;
As magic wonder,
Wild affright,
Rives asunder
Men's delight:
Our ghost, our corpse; and we
Rise to be.

As flies the lizard
Serpent fell;
As goblin vizard,
At the spell
Of the wizard,
Sinks to hell:
Our life, our laugh, our lay
Pass away.

As wake the morning
Trumpets bright;
As snow-drop, scorning
Winter's might,
Rises warning
Like a spright:
We buried, dead, and slain
Rise again.

Nothing like a little Beddoes to put the bleak in your Halloween week! Nice choice.

My thinking exactly! :) Thanks so much.

I owe you an email. I'm sorry RL got in the way. I'll be replying to you soon.
