The word May is a perfumed word.
It is an illuminated initial.
It means youth, love, song,
and all that is beautiful in life.
_ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Journal”
Let all thy joys be as the month of May.
_ Francis Quarles
I have been in the meadows all the day,
And gathered there the nosegay that you see,
Singing within myself as bird or bee
When such do field-work on a morn of May.
_ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
May the blessings of MAY bring a song to your heart.
