Half a pound of pickled prunesForty thousand grasses ...No, hang on. That can't be right.I think I need my glasses.
Three spoons of compost, four of soot,Blend in a spot of inkNow try it out upon your footAnd see just what you think.
At last - the perfect shoe polishFor the witch with poorer sight.It drips and smells and leaves a trail To lead you home at night.
Flitter, flutter, flower to flowerPaintbox on the wingYou don't know that you are ourHarbinger of spring.
Beneath a blue moonWhen the winter roses bloomTime slows to never.
