Midsummer's Eve

Tonight is the night that has traditionally 
been set aside for high-spirited merrymaking. 
Savor and celebrate life's simple pleasures. 
Revel in all that Nature provides. 
And tomorrow rise early in the morning
wander out into the yard
and put your nose 
deep into a blossom that is heavy with dew
for it is legend that anyone who washes their face
in the dew of Midsummer's Day
will grow more lovely with the passing year.
