Begin with seven sparkling stars,
a ray of the sun
and a forgotten secret.
Next take a shadow
and a phoenix’s song.
Let them simmer in a nightmare
for a winter’s eve.
Mince three wishes and add them to the brew.
A griffin feather and fairy dust are the rest of the concoction.
Now you need to let it stew until the next full moon.
You’ll know it’s done when it turns mysterious purple.
Catch it quickly before it can escape.
Good for 100 years of magic.
