Garden Blogger’s Muse Day – May 1, 2008

-May Day-

A delicate fabric of bird song
Floats in the air,
The smell of wet wild earth
Is everywhere.
Oh I must pass nothing by
Without loving it much,
The raindrop try with my lips,
The grass with my touch;
For how can I be sure
I shall see again
The world on the first of May,
Shining after the rain?
Sara Teasdale, May Day

  1. My very favorite May Day poem, Nancy. Love your beautiful photo as well. Happy May Day !

    Thanks so much for participating.

  2. The perfect choice of poem for May Day! Enjoyed yesterday’s poem as well. My flowering crabapples are in all their glory right now, too; I could sit for hours just looking at them. Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for sharing your love of poetry and nature with us. Your blog makes me smile every time I visit.

  4. I love the sentiment in that poem. Reminds me of “God’s World” by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Do you know it? Great poem for an autumn muse day. Heh heh!

    Thanks, Nancy!

  5. Lovely poem and sweet photo. You are very good. When our son was little he wanted a Children’s Day…we decided on May 1. So now I must call my 27 yr old baby boy.
