Project Main Details

The Haunted Wood Ghost story 
This is a poem by Isaac McCellan, and I'm seeking a creepy, textured, alto, "witchy" voice...someone who can wrap a Halloweeny, storyteller style around this classic piece. It will be produced with eerie ambient music for effect.

This will be featured with several other ghost stories in an annual radio show on BlogTalkRadio. For reference, here's last year's broadcast:

First two stanzas posted in the demo box.

This project may lead to a 2nd poem, paid separately, for the show. Thank you.

Script Details

I ofttimes come to this lonely place,
And forget the stir of my restless race;
Forget the woes of human life,
The bitter pang and the constant strife,
The angry word and the cruel taunt,
The sight and the sound of guilt and want,
And the frequent tear by the widow shed,
When her infants ask in vain for bread.
All these I put from my mind aside,
And forget the offence of worldly pride.

It is said that the Spirits of buried men
Oft come to this wicked world again;
That the churchyard turf is often trod
By the unlaid tenants of tomb and sod,
That the midnight sea itself is swept,
By those who have long beneath it slept.
And they say of this old, mossy wood,
Whose hoary trunks have for ages stood,
That every knoll and dim-lit glade
Is haunted at night by its restless Shade.
