Bealtaine revels

Jane Dougherty Writes

Painting by William Blake

Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing circa 1786 by William Blake 1757-1827

The fire blazes high and strong,

Surrounded by a happy throng,

Singing, dancing all night long.

*

And in the dawn of spring’s new day,

When all the songs have died away,

Last night’s wishes are here to stay.

*

Homeward now, hair rumpled, clothes torn,

They yawn and smile and sleep lovelorn,

Dreaming of winter and bairns to be born.
