To Get You In The Mood



Round about the cauldron go
In the poison'd entrails throw
Toad that under cold stone
Days and nights hast thirty one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got
Boil though first i charmed pot


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 blind worm 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.  

Three Witches from Macbeth 
by 
William Shakespeare

  7. Great post in words and images! Love your music, these are the words:

    Lacrimosa dies illa
    Qua resurget ex favilla
    Judicandus homo reus.
    Huic ergo parce, Deus:
    Pie Jesu Domine,
    Dona eis requiem. Amen.

    (Full of tears shall be that day
    On which from ashes shall arise
    The guilty man to be judged;
    Therefore, O God, have mercy on him.
    Gentle Lord Jesus,
    grant them eternal rest. Amen.)

    Lacrimosa (Wikipedia)
