The Ghost in the Garden“But in my dreams that night I saw the beautiful sad lady again. She was waltzing in the garden, sometimes by herself, sometimes partnered by other phantom dancers. She beckoned to me in my dream, inviting me to join her, but I remained standing on the verandah steps until she danced away into the distance and faded from view.”
A haunting account by Ruskin Bond
