May Day! May Day!

Ah! The lovely month of May! A blessed Beltane to each and every one of you! This is the time of year when the blood quickens, when the land springs back to life, and when all good and nourishing things go into the ground as seeds to be harvested when the cold winds blow.

It's also the time for making love, and more making love, and having happy, healthy, nourishing sex with someone you love! Remember, the poet Walt Whitman counted as a miracle "sleeping in the bed at night with someone I love." What greater miracles are there?

This is also the weekend of the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm, the annual revel that Spare and I enjoy so much. This year's festival will feature the Celtic band Cu Dubh ... I can hardly wait.

I just want my three readers to know that I do read each and every comment. I don't respond usually, but I will start. That's how we can get a dialogue going, and, after all, a blog should be about give-and-take.

So, happy May! Do a little dance, make a little love ... get down tonight!

From Anne
Leader emeritus, Spoutwood Mountain Tribe

Good old KC and the Sunshine Band, that takes me back a bit! One of my favorite songs... :-)

Have a wonderful Beltaine/May Day!

The Fairy Festival is my chief revel of the year, and I'm counting the hours until I get there!

Hope you know your CAMELOT


GUENEVERE:
It's May! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
It's here, It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!
It's May! It's May!
That gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad!
It's mad! It's gay!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
Whence this fragrance wafting through the air?
What sweet feelings does its scent transmute?
Whence this perfume floating ev'rywhere?
Don't you know it's that dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la! That dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la!
GUENEVERE & CHORUS:
Tra la la la la [etc.]
GUENEVERE:
Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That darling month when ev'ryone throws
Self-control away.
It's time to do
A wretched thing or two,
And try to make each precious day
One you'll always rue!
It's May! It's May!
The month of "yes you may,"
The time for ev'ry frivolous whim,
Proper or "im."
It's wild! It's gay!
Depraved in every way
The birds and bees with all of their vast
Amorous past
Gaze at the human race aghast,
The lusty month of May.
CHORUS:
Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
Tra la! It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear.
It's May! It's May!
The month of great dismay.
GUENEVERE:
When all the world is brimming with fun,
Wholesome or "un."
GUENEVERE & CHORUS:
It's mad! It's gay!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
