Midsummer's Eve



I hardly slept a wink all night long
the frogs croaked and the crickets sang along.

There were bangs and clatters
and manical laughter.

Stomping of feet and crashing of drums,
Wind made the house sigh with the rum pa pa pums.

The house shook from the raps on the door
while enormous feet vibrated the floor.

I opened the window and what did I see...

The fairies all gathered around for their dance
the trolls and gollums all were entranced.

The imps all banged on their tiny tin drums
while the naiads in the pond began to hum.

There were shrieks and laughter from the ground to the sky.
Overwhelmed by the magic, I thought I might cry.

Paws on the roof!
A wheel or two, too!
I looked on the lawn but the gang seemed aloof.

On the edge of the woods, she stood looking me
stirring her caldron and sipping her tea.

As the witch approached I knew I would scream
but she knelt very close and whispered - it's all just a dream....
