So, if today is midsummer’s day, the summer’s solstice,
then last night was midsummer’s eve
when Oberon and Titania play and mortals pay
but everything seemingly turns out just fine.
If only …..
Is it a fit day to celebrate unrequited love
or stillborn relationships that never were
and thus can never end?
I wonder what Artemis thinks of Will’s play?
