Forgetful Witch


Here are some more pics of the witchy bracelet and necklace up for auction this week.  The pieces tell the story of The Three Vegetarian Witches.

 
Since that tale has been told recently, I'm sharing a Shel Silverstein poem.

I used to be a witching witch,
But now I'm just a watching witch
Watching other witches witching,
Wishing I could be bewitching.


But it's sad to tell
I can't recall one mystic curse
Or brew a poison.  Even worse,
I cannot chant a deadly curse
Or cast a magic spell.


I can't turn princes into frogs
Or turn bad children into hogs.
I used to long ago, but now
I seem to have forgotten how.
Was it "Toads and snails and puppies' tails"?
Or "Toes and pails of guppies and whales"?
Or "Toast and bales of stale snail scales"?



I search my books and chew my nails
Wonderin' which is which,
'Cause a witch which can't bewitch
Just can't be a witch.





Find the witches here.



Before they forget and wander off.
