Don’t Judge a Spell Book by its Cover
Which witch is which?
Words that sound the same but have different meanings are called homophones. That’s how this poem began. I was keen to write a poem about witches, and then the phrase ‘which witch’ popped into my head. What other homophones can you think of, and how could you combine them in a poem?
Books and covers
The phrase ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ is a a well used one. It is easy to judge people on their appearance. Sometimes, it is a true reflection of the person. And that’s why we can become lazy and assume that the outside always reflects the inside of a person. But of course, it’s not always the case (in fact, it’s probably very rarely the case). Think about how different one person can look from day to day. Appearances can be deceptive. Somebody who looks nice can be horrid. Somebody who looks a bit scary could be really nice. It’s a complicated world!
