Even though the first day of May isn’t for a few hours yet, it’s May somewhere. Here’s a poem in honor of the month.
Some folks celebrate May Day, there’s Cinco de Mayo, and don’t forget Mother’s day, but I think we should celebrate the whole month in honor of what its name signifies: permission.
Take a stroll on a sunny, windy day?
Stay up late before you hit the hay?
Pluck petulant pansy petals so more will have their way?
Get deep into Spring cleaning to get ready for Summer days?
May’s the month with a built in okay for every good thing.
It’s the correct word for misapplied cans. It’s a great time
for early sunning at the beach, be you any age woman or man.
It’s a month for pushing Winter out the door,
and putting Spring flowers to bed.
You might have your own favorite month, it’s true,
but my fave
is that month after April
and right before June
