A fantasy poem, in ottava rima, by P. B. Shelley, published 1824.

The beautiful Witch is the daughter of Apollo, and the spirit of mischief and poetry. She disports herself amid pyrotechnic imagery of magic boats, airships, storms, and fireballs. Her mysterious companion is the Hermaphrodite, and together they circle the globe, weaving spells over recalcitrant kings, priests, soldiers, and young lovers.
