Ensorcell means to bewitch, enchant, or charm. Ensorcell derives from the Middle French ensorceler, which is an alteration of Old French ensorcerer from en- (in, into, on) and sorcier (sorcerer). Ensorcell was first used around 1535–45.
Ensorcell is such a delightful word and it has several off-shoots including ensorcelled, ensorcelling, and ensorcellment.
The ensorcellment of those eyes/ your soul is grabbed and mystified./ Bewitched you follow where they lead/ a stranger to all but what they heed./ Enchanted, haunted, mesmerized, ensnared/ prisoner to the spell, of everything else unaware./ There was no warning, no chance to hide/ you were taken in completely mystified…Ella Patrice
