October 2016 Challenge: Spooky Atmosphere

Please accept your mods' apology for missing September!

Here is the October Challenge:

The October Challenge will have the theme "Spooky Atmosphere". Prompts will be some of Tolkien's creepier poems. These will be behind the cut. Choose lines, verses or whole poems to inspire you to write something with a scary atmosphere. Simply comment below this post telling what you have chosen.

The October challenge stories may be entered into the queue at any time this month, and will be revealed on Monday, October 31, Halloween. Please tag your story "challenge: spooky atmosphere" and "month: 2016 october". Please remember to use the following header template (also found on the community profile page), and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.
