Subject(s): Witchcraft & Witches

Ashes of me,
Lift on the fires I may not name;
Lick, lovely flame.

Will the fagot not burn?
Throw on the tired broom,
Stabled still in my room.

I have ridden wide and well,
Shall I say with whom?
Stop the town bell!

Hard eyes that stare,
I have lain with hope,
I have suckled Judas' rope
As it swung on the air;
Go find the silver pieces in the moon,
I hid them there.
