Tombstone Tales: Highgate Gothic

Highgate gothic

Twelve o'clock and where once
the groom and his bride 
were murdered,
it's pitch black now and every
room is deserted.

Except the one where
a grand piano is playing
Variations on a French Cancan
- do you see the pianist?

Night after night
caught in a web of white light
he's playing the same
Very Slow & Spooky Tune
over and over again
- do you see him?

The keys are touched
by invisible fingers when
a ghostly band joins in on this
Orchestral Music Made by Spirits

and disappears
into the fog,


until the groom and his bride
return to Highgate and the clock

strikes midnight again.


  1. Highgate is one of my fave cemeteries.

  2. Hey that's pretty cool that you added music for my listening enjoyment...

  3. Love your site! Looking forward to seeing more!
