A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in autumn

I dreamed a dream...

I dreamed a dream…

I dreamed a dream this autumn morn and woke with this in my mind – ’twas a scene from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (which portion, below, I consign!)

“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,
Lull’d in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamell’d skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in…”

I’m not sure what why I dreamed this dream (tho’ it was very pretty), but oh! how I would rather live in that dream than here on the edge of a city!

(yeah, pretty corny, but I really did wake up from a dream where I was daydreaming by the banks of a pond, surrounded by the most lovely, sweet scented wild flowers. I was so disappointed when I realized it was all in my mind…not disappointed, however, that mine did not follow Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!)
