Magical Potion Chant
“Here we are
Ready at last.
To make our potion
A potion of the past.
A potion for now
A potion for then.
Please give us the okay
To be on our way!”
Suddenly, the air became still. An amazing quiet filled the room. Even
Twyla was quiet. Isabella nodded for Bogart to begin. Bogart looked at
Isabella. Then, everything happened so fast. Isabella couldn’t believe
her eyes. Bogart jumped right into the kettle. Isabella was shocked by
what came next. Bogart was doing the backstroke and waving to everyone.
Twyla couldn’t stop laughing. Isabella wanted to laugh but didn’t.
Instead, she began to count.
“One, two, three
Please dear Bogart
Come out, Come out.
The show is now over
It’s time to begin
We all can see
You really can swim.”
There was a big splash and Bogart jumped out.
Again, Isabella began to chant.
Come to me
Inside our potion
Is where you want to be.”
Each junior witch was given a small bag, filled to the top.
“Garlic and onions will give it some taste.
Milk and flour will make it like paste.
Corn and nuts will be a plus.
And if that’s not enough,
We’ll put in more stuff.
Ice cream, eggs, raisins and honey.
Now it’s beginning to smell really funny.”
The final chant began:
It’s time to leave.
So hurry to the top
And out you will pop.
Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh
Please swim to the top.
And out you will come
Plop, plop, plop!”
