Graveyard snippet

A philosophic and self-possessed ship's captain was passing through a graveyard at midnight, when a sheeted ghost rose up from behind a tombstone, and approached him with menacing gestures. The Ancient Mariner coolly raised his stick and gave it a crack over the head, asking, "What it meant being out of it's grave at so late an hour?"
