May

  • May brings flocks of pretty lambs, / Skipping by their fleecy dams.

    • Sara Coleridge,
    • "The Months," Pretty Lessons in Verse for Good Children ()
  • May is fulfillment compounded with immediate expectation and ultimate hope. May is like the first rising of the curtain before the play, the first measures of the orchestral overture. No moment afterward comes up to that.

  • It was one of those beautiful, lengthening days, when May was pressing back with both hands the shades of the morning and the evening ...

  • O happy, happy morning! O dear, familiar place! / O warm, sweet tears of Heaven, fast falling on my face! / O well-remembered, rainy wind, blow all my care away, / That I may be a child again this blissful morn of May.

  • The voice of one who goes before to make / The paths of June more beautiful, is thine, / Sweet May!

  • For many birds May is the most important month of the year, for it is their time of nesting. Their song now approaches its greatest perfection. Early in the month it expresses the rapture of courtship, later the joy of possession.

  • May is much sunshine through small leaves.

  • Now comes the May time, the wild hawks' play-time, / With long blithe daytime and warm night showers ...

  • A delicate fabric of bird song / Floats in the air, / The smell of wet wild earth / Is everywhere.
