Devilry

She played a game with Quija board
thought some sad spirit might

Reach through and talk.
Reach through and talk.

Her hand was guided silently
to spell out letters of the name

Ellen in March
Ellen in March

A message too mysterious
she asked a little more

The month of my death.
The month of my death.

Her mommy stormed into the room
snatched the board away.

Where'd you get this?
Where'd you get this?

From my cousin Katie mom.
She said you not to tell.

She said you  would get mad.
She said you would get mad.

There's devilry in these here boards,
there's devilry in these.

Leave it alone.
Leave it alone.

But Ellen came into her dreams,
yes Ellen came to say,

I want to be you.
I want to be you.

  2. Interesting use of echo lines to create the mood. Interesting characters as well. I'm wondering what the child thought of the Ouija board -- and her dreams. I sense a nice ghost story here.
