By the pricking of my thumbs...

Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake.

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder's fork and blindworm's sting,

Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf.
Silvered in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,

Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.
Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
When shall we meet again, in thunder, lightning, or in rain?
For more Halloween hurlyburly, fly over to the blog of our bewitching hostess Vanessa Valencia.
You'll be charmed.
