The Glamour by Lord Byron

The Glamour, 1813 by Lord Byron is a poem to be savored. The vampire is depicted in his timeless evil by the great poet.

                                                                  But first on this earth as vampire sent, 
Thy corpse shall from tomb be rent:
Then ghastly haunt thy native place, 
And suck the blood of all thy race; 
                                                                     There from thy daughter, sister, wife,

At midnight drain the stream of life;
Yet loathe the banquet which perforce
Must feed thy livid living corpse.
Thy victims are they yet expire
Shall know the demon for the sire, 
As cursing thee, thou cursing them,
Thy flowers are withered on the stem
