First of May

I woke up this morning
I had a scone and a large house blend
Then a little conversation
with my squirrel and chipmunk friends

I said, “I’m sick and tired of winter,
and I wish that it was spring.”
Then a little fella named Robin Red Breast
began to sing.

And he sang,
Ooh-ooh, child
what you think the cold winter’s gonna last forever?
Ooh-ooh, child,
now’s the time for all the people to get together…

‘Cause it’s the first of May,
first of May…

— “First of May”* by Jonathan Coulton

Yes, it’s the first of May, and as Robin Red Breast says, it’s the time for all the people to get together outside.

So find that special someone and explore the great outdoors in a very special way.
