"The Witches Caldron" by William Shakespeare

Witch with Cauldron

“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 babble”



“Double, double, toil and trouble,

Fire burn, and caldron bubble”

The Old English Spelling in "The Witches Caldron"
