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'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 cauldron bubble.

                                          William Shakespeare 



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 broomstick lay beside her -

I'm positive of that.


Her chin was sharp and pointed,

Her eyes were -  I don't know -

For, when she turned towards me -

I thought it best -  to go!

                                   Percy H. Ilott



The Hag is astride

This night for to ride;

The Devil and she together:

Through thick and through thin,

Now out and then in,

Though ne'er so foul be the weather.


A Thorn or a Burr

She takes for a Spur:

With a lash of a Bramble she rides now,

Through Brakes and through Briars,

O'er Ditches and Mires,

She follows the Spirit that guides now.


No beast, for his food,

Dares now range the wood;

But hused in his lair he lies lurking:

While mischiefs, by these,

On land and on seas,

At noon of Night are a working.


The storm will arise,

And trouble the skies;

This night, and more for the wonder,

The ghost from the Tomb

Affrighted shall come,

Called out by the clap of Thunder.

                                       Robert Herrick



Live lizard, dead lizard

Marinated, fried.

Poached lizard, pickled lizard

Salty lizard hide.


Hot lizard, cold lizard

Lizard over ice.

Baked lizard, boiled lizard

Lizard served with spice.


Sweet lizard, sour lizard

Smaoked lizard heart.

Leg of lizard, lion of lizard

Lizard a la carte.
