Wilderness Festival 2013 - a review in poetry

 And see where pixies roam
 Where sprites and fairies late have stood
 Their bare feet on the loam

Come and look in the wild wild wood
Where any attire ‘goes’
Flowers, feathers, golden masks
And even spandex hose!

Wilderness 2013 

Come and write in the wild wild wood
 And tell tall tales of tails
Smile and tell your fairy myths
Of gardens, spas and snails

Wilderness 2013 

Come and eat in the wild wild wood
 More soup, or cake, or chips
But now it seems it’s pizza time
Tomorrow veg and dips

Wilderness 2013  

Come and drink in the wild wild wood
Vodka, by the glass
And cider, beer and cocktails too
Until you sleep at last

Wilderness 2013 

Come and skate in the wild wild wood
Whooshing through the trees
Slipping, sliding down the slopes
Landing on your knees

Wilderness 2013 

Come and shop in the wild wild wood
Vintage, bags and hats
Bubbles, jewellery and drums
The tails and ears of cats!

Wilderness 2013 

Come and play in the wild wild wood
Nude cricket or ping pong
Drink, and practice circus skills
Maybe sing a song

Wilderness 2013 

Come and swim in the wild wild wood
Or lay and watch the fun
Splashing lazy like a dream
Under the warming sun

Wilderness 2013 

Come and rest in the wild wild wood
Sleeping by the lake
Or lay on the grass all soft and cool
And in sun, gently bake

Wilderness 2013 

Come with me to the wild wild wood
The best festival to roam
Experience the sights and sounds
And wish it was your home…. 


You might have guessed I adored this festival. It really was gorgeous, filled with beautiful people in beautiful costumes, doing beautiful things while eating beautiful food and listening to beautiful music in a beautiful place.  

My 'must do' festival for next year. (even a kids field so no excuses for parents not to go)
11/10 on my fabulous festival scale
