YOU spotted snakes, with double tongue,Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen;Newts and blind-worms do no wrong,Come not near our fairy Queen!Weaving spiders, come not here;Hence, you long-legg’d spinners, hence!Beetles black, approach not near;Worm nor snail, do no offence. Philomel, with melodySing in our sweet lullaby;Lulla, lulla, lullaby, Lulla, lulla, lullaby:Never harmNor spell nor charmCome our lovely lady nigh:So, Good Night, with lullaby.
Songs from Shakespeare


YOU spotted snakes, with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen;
Newts and blind-worms do no wrong,
Come not near our fairy Queen!

Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long-legg’d spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence. 

Philomel, with melody
Sing in our sweet lullaby;
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, Lulla, lulla, lullaby:
Never harm
Nor spell nor charm
Come our lovely lady nigh:
So, Good Night, with lullaby.

October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds among the staff and students. Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and Hagrid’s pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds.
