A Bewitching Night

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Macbeth ~ William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Just wanted to say that I have been "dropping in" to read your blog for a while now and to tell you how much I like it. It is so beautiful....a wee place of calm. Thank you so much for writing it.m

Lovely pic and poem! Over here it was very windy with rain in it and no brave souls were out and about (thank goodness). I have a splendid pumpkin, but it's so nice I don't like to cut into it just yet!

Happy 1st of November to you Jo. Enjoyed the picture and the poem. We only had about 10 kids on the doorstep last night. It gets quieter every year.
