May May Be

May May Be By Franklin Price 4/25/2015 May may be the nicest month Of all the dozen best You may ask why would I say this Let us put it to the test The days of winter gone Freakish April in the past Flowers are still blooming We have not seen the last The days have balmy temperatures The nights are sleeping cool Hot Summer days are not yet here The kids are still in school I remember dancing 'round the pole When I was in grade three Over under round about Was a lot of fun for me May has many holidays In abundance they abound Can celebrate or commemorate With silence or with sound May Day's the first with dancing pole Cinco de Mayo, Teacher's Day Victory in Europe Take your mother out and pay Don't forget our soldiers For our freedom lives they give Memorial Day is at the end Celebrate the lives you live For May and all the other months Last words I say to you Respect yourself and others In everything you say and do

You are right Franklin. May, may be the nicest month. It puts the winter to bed once and for all, for April cannot always accomplish this efficiently. A very nice poem that gives me hope and I must read it aloud to the state of New Hampshire in order that it give in and say goodbye to winter!

Diane, thanks for your comments and you're more than welcome to read it to the state of New Hampshire. The northeast can't really decide what to do about Winter. Maybe this will help.
