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!💐💐
Ps. We’ll be gathering online this evening to connect with the seasonal energy and our inner wisdom. If you fancy a bit of midsummer dreaming, there’s still time to join. Full details here.
