Midsummer Night’s Dream

My daughter is doing Shakespeare’s, Midsummer Night’s Dream, at school.

She’s 7 and I was a bit surprised when I heard this was the case. 

But then listening to her read (an abridged version!) to me last night, I understood why: fairies and sprites, potions and spells, enchanted woods, and a character called Bottom!🤣

Today is Midsummer’s Day in the UK calendar.

Here’s a little Shakespeare in honour of it,

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,

Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,

Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,

With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:

There sleeps Titania sometime of the night, 

Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.

Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream (Oberon, Act 2 Scene 1).

Let’s flourish together!💐💐
