By H.P. Lovecraft

The Cats -- Part of A Winter Wish and other poems by H.P. Lovecraft. A somewhat horrific cat poem.

Nemesis -- The last line of which has echoed in my mind upon awakening from a few particularly nasty nightmares.

Festival -- One of my favorite Lovecraft poems. Readers of Call of Cthulhu gamebooks may recognize this as "Yule Horror." It is now included here under its original title, along with the final stanza which was omitted in CoC.

Hallowe'en in a Suburb -- A Lovecraft poem for one of my favorites times of year.
