The only Ghost I ever saw

The only Ghost I ever saw
Was dressed in Mechlin so
He wore no sandal on his foot
And stepped like flakes of snow

His Gait was soundless, like the Bird
But rapid like the Roe
His fashions, quaint, Mosaic
Or haply, Mistletoe

His conversation seldom
His laughter, like the Breeze
That dies away in Dimples
Among the pensive Trees

Our interview was transient
Of me, himself was shy
And God forbid I look behind
Since that appalling Day!
