What are your favourite spooky poems, that are two to three minutes long when read out, for an audience of adults?

My partner is reading out a selection of poetry tomorrow night, and she's decided on a spooky theme suitable for Hallowe'en. She's reading to an audience of adults. I'm trying to help her find poems, and so far haven't been very successful - please help!
An example of the kind of thing she's looking for is Robert Browning's "My Last Duchess"
. Less appropriate are extracts from plays, limericks, or poems primarily aimed at children (unless they're particularly good).
