Double, double, toil and trouble

The Witch I saw her plucking cowslips, And marked her where she stood: She never knew I watched her While hiding in the wood. Her skirt was brightest crimson, And black her steeple hat, Her broom lay beside her - I'm positive of that. Her chin was sharp and pointed, Her eyes were - I [...]
