The old woman as she talks to the preacher.

"Old Woman All Skin and Bone" is the sixth story included in the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Like the previous story, it is more like a poem.

The poem is about a dead old woman who lives in a graveyard and decides to go to church and rest awhile. She goes to the door, talks to the preacher and asks him spooky questions. The poem ends with a scream.
