May be or May be not…

“And a bird overhead sang Follow,
And a bird to the right sang Here;
And the arch of the leaves was hollow,
And the meaning of May was clear.” 

Not clear to me, Algernon Swinburne. Not clear to me.


“Hebe’s here, May is here! The air is fresh and sunny; And the miser-bees are busy Hoarding golden honey.
Thomas Bailey

That was yesterday. We were blessed. My dear friend Tessa’s 60th birthday garden party. Outside. In the garden. In the sunshine. With no rain.

And today?

“But winter lingering chills the lap of May.” Oliver Goldsmith

May, PLEASE. I’m talking to you…
