May Day

Saturday 5 May 2018

[May 1 this year was on Tuesday last. While observing May Day we recount the following words. Though written 85 years ago, they remain as fresh as ever even today.]

One morning you will wake and find
Suddenly into the sky has climbed
The wonderful unheard-of day
The never-ending First of May.

Charles Madge (Cambridge Left, 1933)
