Blood on the moon
Foretold that trouble was coming soon.
Sally woke to Gillians call;
raced off to save her sister once and for all.
Jimmy was an evil man-
What else could she do but
hit him with that frying pan?
Buried by moonlight-
daylights roses quite the sight.
Mom, Who's that man out in the yard?
She squinted hard.
Jimmy's boots rose from the ground,
a frog perched upon his gravely mound.
The Practical Magic Blog Party is underway. (Follow the link to find other fun Practical Magic posts from many other fans of this great movie and book.)
I had such fun staging this little scene from the movie. I ended up planting "Jimmy" under a rhododenrum bush, since my rosebush is in the side yard and our neighbors had a deck full of people. I felt a little silly digging a hole and partway burying boots while half the town was watching me and wondering what the heck I was doing. The tequila bottle may have given them a clue, but Jimmy ended up under the rhodie bush instead.
Last October I had written a Practical Magic post as well, with a video from the movie. Click here to see that post.
