The Superstitious Ghost
by Arthur Guiterman

I'm such a quiet little ghost, dimure and inoffensive.
The other spirits think I'm most absurdly apprehensive.
Through all the merry hours of night, I'm uniformly cheerful.
I love the dark, but in the light, I own I'm rather fearful.
Each dawn, I cower in my bed, in every brightness seeing
That weird, uncanny form of dread - an aweful human being.
Of course, I'm told they can't exist. That nature wouldn't let them
But Wily Spook, the humanist, declaires that he has met them.
He says they do not glide like us, but walk in eerie paces.
They're solid, not diaphonous, with arms, and legs, and faces!
And some are beggars, some are kings, some have and some are wanting.
They squander time in doing things, instead of simply haunting.
They talk of "art," the horrid crew, and things they call "ambitions."
Of course, I know as well as you they're only superstitions.
But, should the fateful day arrive when face to face I see one,
I'm sure 'twill scare me quite alive, and then... oh, then I'll be one!
