May lends lovely reasons
To sing songs of praise
Wringing from time’s seasons
Nature’s greenest days

May is like a flower
Garden in a bud
Born of April’s shower
And meadows of mud

May is a grand belfry
From it laughter tolls
Children prancing freely
Like spring’s newborn foals

May rolls, soft and airy
Like a tumbleweed
‘cross an azure prairie
Spilling blossom-seed

May is like a poem
Sun-spun lilt and rhyme
Troubadour exalting
Nature’s greenest time
