Episode 34: Happy Hallowe’en – spooky poem edition

Effigy of John Donne in his burial shroud, St. Paul’s Cathedral

I love digging up a spooky poem to read every Hallowe’en. This year, a short poem by metaphysical poet John Donne, published in the posthumous collection Songs and Sonnets in 1633.

Hope you enjoy “The Apparition”. Happy Hallowe’en to all Stephen King and horror fans everywhere.
