POSSESSED, by            
First Line: I am possessed by you as witches were
Last Line: To see me burn upon the market-place!
Subject(s): Witchcraft & Witches


I am possessed by you as witches were
Possessed by demons, knowing all too well,
The creaking broomstick and the clanging bell
And in my ears, the crazy partridge whir,
Of darkness. Oh, very cleverly you stir
Love's old ingredients into this spell,
And very cleverly you can compel
My senses. You are too apt a sorcerer.
It may be that some unenchanted drink,
Some casual circles drawn in the sand,
Or one defenseless look upon your face,
Would be the magic I could not withstand.
I am possessed by you, but never think
To see me burn upon the market-place!
