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.

Kentucky, 2017

 

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!

 

Rudyard Kipling
