Poetry Friday: Macbeth

In front of me I have a copy of Bruce Coville's retelling of "Macbeth." Illustrated by Gary Kelley in gloomy-toned pastels, the picture book seems to fit the gray afternoon, and after I finish typing this, I am going to sit down and read it by myself. A treat!

For my Poetry Friday selection, I'll hand it over to the witches:

Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

You'll find a roundup of all of today's Poetry Friday posts at the Blue Rose Girls' blog. If you're intrigued and want to join in (please do!), I wrote a little Poetry Friday primer last week.

Reference: William Shakespeare's Macbeth, retold by Bruce Coville, Dial Books, 1997
