Rating: 2.5

Very nice. I would only make one change. Take out the apostrophe in line two; it doesn't belong in the word GHOSTS. Or on second thought, maybe it does. If you meant more than one ghost, then it doesn't. But if you meant the GHOST (singular) IS THERE, then it does belong! Well written, lad!
