(26 April 1564 - 23 April 1616 / Warwickshire)

Song of the Witches: "Double, double toil and trouble"

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 howlet'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.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

'The Song of the Witches'- an appropriate title of the poem. A nice, rhyming sonnet about the three witches of Macbeth.
Shakespear probably had as much fun writing it as we have reading it.
The charm is firm! ! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
