Krampus by Jasmin Mödlhammer at



written by: Jasmin Mödlhammer



Snow is falling on my skin
It’s melting in the very deep
Of my soul

I fear his rising
Am I brave, or am I craven?
I hear his bells outside the woods

He and his Master are coming for me
They want to test me
and judge me

I see his eyes sparkling through the woods
In his hands a rood and a sack
I’m shaking

Now he’s standing in front of me
White horns sparkling in the moonlight
His mouth twitches to a scary smile

I was a bad child


Krampus is a scary creature which accompanies St. Nicholas during St. Nicholas Day. He punishes children for their bad behavior during the year.
