Ronovan writes Decima poetry challenge #43 The rites of May in the minds of faerie folk.

The Morris dancers dance and sing,

to patterns fashioned long ago

unwritten, only told and shown.

Still welcoming the start of Spring,

garlands twirl, tambourine bells ring

places set in remembered lines

with merry steps they intertwine,

as reminders of bygone days

the pipe and concertina play

while all hands clapping mark the time.

  1. I especially liked the sound in these lines: “as reminders of bygone days

    the pipe and concertina play”

  4. They certainly seem to be unsettling especially when combined with hobby horse and mummer types of ritual
