“Thrice the brinded cat hath mew’s.”

“Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whined.”

“Harpier cries:—’tis time! ‘tis time!”

“Round about the caldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot!”

‘Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble?’

“Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron 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 caldron bubble?’

“Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
Witches’ mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin’d salt-sea shark;
Root of hemlock digg’d i the dark;
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver’d in the moon’s eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar’s lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver’d by a drab,—
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger’s chaudron,
For the ingrediants of our caldron.”

‘Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.’ 

 Coll it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.”

from Macbeth

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
