Under a bush, under the porch, inside a den.
May urges magnificent, strong-withered beasts
To gallop through wide, rolling pastures.
Foals stand on stilt-like legs
And spread them wide to drink
Their mother’s milk or reach tender grass.
Trees don their leafy dresses of emerald
With birds’ nest crowns that tweet!
May sunshine spreads like warm butter
Over daisies and tulips,
Blue birds and bunnies,
Young and old hearts.
May is the Queen of Spring!
We celebrate my birthday with a beach walk.
Earthworms wriggle into the rich soil,
Lily of the Valley by my garden walk,
And a rebirth of wonder is felt
In our souls, renewing our spirits.
Earth shimmers with new lives,
Welcoming them in the month of May:
May, glorious and happy,
A month to make new memories
To last the whole year long!
