“Love is Blind on Such a Night”


Lovely Midsummer(credit: Photobucket)

“Love is Blind on Such a Night”

Was on a summer solstice such as this
when drunk with idleness, old Bottom napped.
Awakened then, his new reflection kissed
two donkey ears, a toothy grin, a sap!

“Hee haw!” ; a screech, as his reflection frowns
but through the eyes of love, Titania sees
our hero, Bottom, with a kingly crown!
So, love may tilt upon a bless`ed breeze

with lofty dreams and sprightly attitude.
Old Oberon’s pretensions give us flight
for all the fairy pleasures in a brew
as comedy of errors fill the night.

That love is blind is surely ecstasy:
old Shakespeare knew of love…and you and me.
