Widdershins

A Poem by Scott H.
"

A midsummer night's dream

"

“Widdershins”
 
Midsummer’s eve
Get lost with me,
E’er we go wandering
Thru the Green
 
To seek the place
Where branches grow
And waystones keep
A circular row
 
Then we must whisper
Moonspun chants,
And counterclockwise
We must dance
 
Midsummer’s eve
Our flight begins,
Whisked away to
Widdershins

You should get points merely for using the word "widdershins." You have great word choice - no cluttering words - everything in it's place to create a strong image with rhythm as well as prose. This is great - I felt like I was skipping along to Elfland, closer in each stanza, without you forcing it. You lead the reader along instead of pushing... adds to the mystery of the journey.
