Dire Walk with Me

This unfortunate soul, in her keeping,
Out the door takes a stroll while still sleeping 
Though she's nursed, won't recover 
She's been cursed, like her lover
On this torrid atoll all is weeping.

The lovely Frances Dee starred in at least one moody masterpiece, I Walked With a Zombie (Jacques Tourneur; 1943). In it she plays nurse Betsy Connell, in charge of zombie Jessica Holland (Christine Gordon). Dee was married to actor Joel McCrea.
