It’s looking a lot like Christmas

Fall 2018

Once the leaves fall down….

Once The Leaves Fall Down

The hills dripped in bursts of sunset

Leaves turn a faint pumpkin shade

Summer slowly being drenched in fall

The chilly days start their invade

Abandoned roads that lead the way

Layered with the tears of a thousand trees

The animals make their way into the valleys

Protected from Octobers icy breeze

The smell of pumpkins sails through the air

Their carved faces displayed for all to see

The children run through the fields

Unaware of direction, unsure of where to be

After the sun sinks under the sky

The earth turns a reddish brown

October time has come around

But everything changes after the leaves fall down

-Nathan Zech

Keep this in mind this Halloween..

MACBETH ~ Act IV, Scene I

First Witch

Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Second Witch

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
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 bubble.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Third Witch

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches’ mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin’d salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg’d i’ the dark,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver’d by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger’s chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble. 

Second Witch

Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
