Midsummer Nights Dream + Witches = Dream Spell Poem
by Dorlana Vann
(Inspired by Midsummer Nights Dream)
She never knew where she’d go when she closed her eyes
Her deep dreams bewitched, and her sleeping soul stolen
Always to follow her love through tomorrow’s skies
Cursed by her own craft, ties deliberately woven.
“I place this herb where I have cried
Hopes of waking beside a new lover.
For now and eternity we’ll be tied
His true love for me he’ll soon discover.
Neither time nor distance will love divide
His heart will never beat for another.
Now sleep please find me before the new dawn
From which a charmed passion will truly spawn.”
The enchantment’s promise laced in bitter-sweet lies
He loved her before they met and days gone golden
Now they’re in yesterday’s forest, sweetly embraced
But when he wakes, memory of love is erased.
