On Midsummer Eve

Sheila Templeton reads her poem 'On Midsummer Eve' at the launch of 'The Smeddum Test' at the National Library of Scotland in June 2013. 'The Smeddum Test' is an anthology of some of the finest contemporary poetry written in Scots in the past 10 years. The 101 poems have been chosen from entries to the James McCash Scots Poetry Competition, an annual event in Scotland's literary calendar.
