Witch Rhyme: An Acrostic

Witches on Broomsticks 
from The History of Witches and Wizards (1720)

Witch Rhyme: An Acrostic

Catch a broom and ride it high
On Halloween no witch be shy
Sail past moon in pointy hat
Trick the Devil silence black cat
Use spells malignant powers too
Magic potions among covens new
Early out and late back in
Swift spectral shapes toward Salem spin
