Sleepery Howe

It wis the eldritch oor o the nicht whan Ichabod took the gate an turnt hamewart alang the sides o the heughs aboon Tarry Toun. The oor wis as dreich as himsel. Faur ablow him the Tappan Zee spreid its drumlie watters. In the deid hush o midnicht, he cud hear the yowfin o a dug frae the tither shore o the Hudson.
