Abraham "Bram" Stoker (November 8, 1847 – April 20, 1912) was an Irish novelist and short story writer, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.
George Bacovia: Strigoii ( Vampires )
With red lanterns, yellow, green
The vampires pass in night over wheat
And the dogs bark on in the night at the fields
The vampires have entered the loft of an inn,
And the loft is seen to be queerly lit
By red lanterns, yellow, green.
The vampires have returned to the loft to retrieve
Pledges left long ago in their lives …
So goes a story that now I’ve forgotten
That at night, in the inn, there appear silhouettes
With red lanterns, yellow, green.
But when the cock crows toward daybreak,
In a pack the vampires tumbles out of the loft,
`Cross the fields, and in chaos they all disappear,
Either red, yellow or green.
