The Merry Month of May

The joy associated with May in the old tales may be associated with the more northern climes in which these songs were written; here, it was April in which everything broke into riotous flowers. Now, summer is here if you judge by the trees instead of the stars.

Still, May and October often have the best weather of the year even here.

The change of season provokes thoughts about the importance of using time well.

Here is a song about the first of May from a medieval troubadour and, later, knight.

I hope the day finds you well.

I had never heard it before! I don't always get around to musicals, although that one is supposed to be a classic.
