Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I - Poem by William Shakespeare

Three witches, casting a spell ...

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 thou first i' the 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'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.

    I have pretty clear memories of being 8,9, or 10- I forget exactly which, and watching a 'skit' of this poem as a very succinct and chopped up play- I remember ketchup was used as blood and I remember the grammar school auditorium. (Report)Reply

    What a horrible recipe!
    Please don't try it at home
    Just by reading it
    We may all turn,
    To stone.

    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,
