Love Potion Number Nine

Love Potion Number Nine

Her desire was to have her man.

So she derived this sinister plan.

She found a spell, a potion, in an ancient book.

She gathered the ingredients and began to cook.


The contents were a combination of the number nine.

She started with 9 oz. of sweet red wine,

Then 9 basil leaves, 9 cloves, 9 apple seeds and 9 petals from a red rose.

With each new ingredient her anticipation grows.


Nine drops of each, vanilla extract, strawberry, and apple juice.

Soon with this potion, her sire she will seduce.

Finally, she cuts a ginseng root, cut into 9 equal pieces.

She is amazed at the fragrance her concoction releases.


By candle light, on the 9th day of the 9th month on the 9th hour,

She stirs 9 times with a wooden spoon to release the potions power.

The mixture boils, and then simmers for 9 minutes in all.

Soon, the man she desires will, in love with her fall.


When cool, she strains the potion into an urn.

Soon, this man, for her love, will passionately yearn.

Blowing 9 times, she blesses in the name of the goddess of love.

And her voice is heralded aloud and is heard from above.






When the appointed time had fully arrived,

She set in motion the plan she had contrived.

Expecting nothing at all, he was so polite.

He drank the wine and then, out went the light.


In the morning he awoke naked upon the floor.

He remembered making love and he had to have more.

Her plan succeeded, she has him at her beckon call.

And now that she has him, she’s going to have a ball.

NOw this is a story that must be heard
she was a witch who made a potion with fruits and herbs

 She wanted his passion most of all
so she brewed the factors for it was her call

 He was only going to touch her just one time
But loves potions was in his seducing wine..

Love this my dear friend..HUgs ~ She Whispers
