May Day is here ! Can you believe it ? Where did April go ?
Last night’s torrential rains, left us with flash floods all over the city, yet….the calendar showed the 1st of May this morning. Do April showers really bring May flowers ?
Hope is the thing with feathers, says the poet. Regardless of the downpour, we hold hope in our hearts for brighter skies and colorful blossoms in this month of May.
Hope is the thing with feathers ~ Emily Dickinson
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.”
Here’s wishing each of you , a Happy May Day !
How did you celebrate yours today ?
