Magic is Practical, ode to a Practical Magic

                        The twins are asleep,
                         All snug in their beds 
                        Magic is stirring beneath their heads,

My trusty familiar helps with the spells
Though he'd rather be eating lavender under the stairs

Playful kitties have been rather naughty
A little separation might teach them 
Not to be so bossy

Magical buttons
Enchanted thread
Beautiful fabrics
Create my magic instead

Paint brushes stand ready
To an artists whim.

Beware the urge to raise the dead,
Your beloved bunnies will rise
Zombies instead

Lavender smells divine by candlelight
I'll make sachets to my hearts delight

A Magical night calls the creatures to life
To frolic and play until morning light

Magic is flying
It's in the air

My cauldron is bubbling
There's smoke everywhere

Magic is Practical,
Practical Magic
Is what she said.

Thank you for visiting!!  I hope you enjoyed what you saw here!  Thank you to Frosted Petunias for hosting this amazing party!!  This is one of me and my sisters favorite movies ever in the whole wide world ever!!
