Titania Naps

Despite the colder weather, Shakespeare invited me to summer, mid-summer, a mid-summer night’s dream. There, I spent some time with two old friends, Oberon and his love/scourge Titania.

Oberon is “is king of the fairies in medieval and Renaissance literature. He is best known as a character in William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in which he is Consort to Titania, Queen of the Fairies.”

Titania Naps

Butterflies siphon shade
spread cool
on the summer grass
beneath the tops
of toad stools,
drizzle shadows
between a rose’s
curls and silk,
where Titania naps
and Oberon,
with a hornet’s zeal,
covets blossom
and scent and sugar.
