Month of the Lady

May is Mother
of the year
Month of the Lady
Month of Roses
When Mother Earth
shows us Her Most
Beauteous Face
and Mary hails us
in return with grace
of sweetest morning dew
and bright beams
of sunlight breaking
through the layers
of our sadness

May is Mother
of the year
Month of Heart’s
great gladness
and life that will
not be contained
but celebrates passion
deep ingrained in the clay
of which we are made

By Nature unhindered,
unafraid and free
as the wildflowers
Warm as the breeze
Vibrant and soft
as tender new leaves
born from branches
not long past bare

And so our hearts
with May’s Kind Care
may find us now
more warm and fair
than April had us believe
May is Mother
of the year
May we Her Gifts receive.
