Can you solve the witch's trap and break the curse they placed on you?
Vixen's herbs in cauldrons mixing,
wins the next without descending,
misguided hearts now truly mending.
The Senior's Apprentice slowly sighing,
melting, melting, slowly dying.
The basilisk's fears are mixed inside.
Sunset-hued trees are tossed around,
moldy dots easy to pound.
breadworms scream without a sound,
the pot now slowly rising.
stirring, stirring, black cats purring, the fire's slowly dying.
The witch's brew is near the top,
served in turkey's clothes, you hear a plop!
the wicked potion, now still steaming,
served by wicked eyes a'gleaming.
What is there inside the pot?
you must show the steps.
To cure your rot right on the spot,
and then pay your respects!
NOTES I just deciphered a strange code scrawled on the back cover in tiny braille morse code, which roughly translates as follows:
A couple of lines are mostly for rhyming purposes, and most of them refer to a particular ingredient, or a method to get the next step. Work it more like a cryptic crossword if that helps, but don't take it too deep, ne? ;P
Puzzling Thoughts collected from my own personal ruminations:
- Rumination 1
It seems to me like the first line of every stanza is a description/reference to something...and, what could misguided hearts have to do with witches and gibberish?
- Rumination 2
It appears that for the first 2 stanzas, each sentence is an individual ingredient. After that, each line is either an ingredient or instruction.
- Rumination 3
For the third stanza, think colors: what kind of tree is colored like a sunset? what kind of sphere may look like mold? What would a breadworm look like?
