Witches Coven

The witches are out tonight
swooping, soaring through the clouds
can`t you hear them cackling?
as they merge into small crowds

with sharp noses and beady eyes
scraggly hair and grotesque warts
they land their brooms in clearings
this their preferred mode of transport

each coven is complete now
a large cauldron is made ready
all thirteen witches around
as they hold their wands steady

eye of newt and tongue of frog
a thread from a dragon`s vest
webs from black widow spiders
for this spell will be the best

the sky is all black and brooding
with a round moon shining bright
now the witches` spell`s complete
let them all enjoy this special Night!!
