I’ve actually been working my way through this one for a couple of months and finally finished it. I did find a few useful potions and herbal combinations and scribbled a few things into my journal, but parts of this book struck me as just sort of silly, especially some of the incantations where the author forced the lines to rhyme. I got the giggles a few times reading those! Mostly I write my own spells anyway for the little bit of ritual/spellwork I do and it’s more the “spirit” of the thing that counts, IMO, not making things rhyme! I’m keeping this on my bookshelf, but it probably won’t be one of those books I refer to regularly. ( )

elementary concoction

A drop of that essential oil--
Breath of life with which we toil
A grain of sand, a world complete
Within the bottle these do meet.

A spark, a flame, the Muses light
Upon the dark face of the night
A sip, to some, the waters clear
And these, so, too, assemble here.

Within the hazes, from the mists
Gloamin's spawn and Dew's kissed
Bright Ev'n Star and rising Sun
Come one, come all and join the fun!

To all who instinctively sing to the tune of Nature, dance to the melody of magic, and sway rhythmically to the beat of the Universe.
First words
Today's world is a hectic place and living in it is a busy matter.
