Blossom, and creeper, and weed
Abandoned house on Andrew Jackson Highway in Kentucky. The local legend has it that it is a old stagecoach station where Andrew Jackson stayed while traveling through the area. It is said to be haunted by a slave ghost and others that died there from disease. Others say that the house is possessed by a black mist that tried to scare off all tenants who lived there.
Veil them, cover them, wall them round —
Blossom, and creeper, and weed —
Let us forget the sight and the sound,
The smell and the touch of the breed!
Fat black ash by the altar-stone,
Here is the white-foot rain,
And the does bring forth in the fields unsown,
And none shall affright them again;
And the blind walls crumble, unknown, o’erthrown,
And none shall inhabit again!
