Midsummer Night Revisited
Wee creatures play in the shrubbery below
The warm afternoon echoes with happy sounds.
After the rain there is softer golden glow
Faeries thrive and dance, happiness abounds.
Sitting, Oberon surveys his regal surrounds,
Smiling casually reflecting on last night,
And about Titania’s unwilling plight.
Under a spell of his, she loved an ass.
Some women do, often for more than a night
Now regret ever picking up on that pass.
