The Magick of Hers

Lavender and fragrant rose,

The fertile seeds of love it sows.

Mugwort for a Samhain scrying;

Hemlock for a broomstick flying.

Rowan tree to ward off harm;

High John for a mojo charm;

Hazel for a wand conductive;

Lovage root for spells seductive.

Yarrow's good for divination;

Devil's-bit for good vibrations;

Rue and dill to evil quell;

And mandrake for a wondrous spell.

—from Priestess and Pentacle by Gerina Dunwich
