Tuesday Poem - Practical Magic

Practical Magic is a poem from Spooky Little Book. 4th book in Little Book Series

Throw a little pinch of salt
Over your shoulder
Burn a smudge of sage for protection
Leave out milk and a sugar cake
For the fairies
It's just being practical

Apologise for squishing flies
Refuse to weed your garden
Scatter wildflower seeds
And leave live spider webs for decoration
Respect your nature habitat
It's just being practical

Lighting candles to help you focus
You walk barefoot through sand and soil
Give thanks to the elements
Enjoy the turning of the seasons
It's just being practical

Help arrives when you need it most
Lost things turn up intact
Bad people get their just desserts
Your good work earns praise and accolades
With love, comes love threefold
