A Blessed Bealtaine!

Awakening Spring by Luc-Oliver Merson
Now the bright morning-star, Day's harbinger,
Comes dancing from the East, and leads with her
The flowery May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow cowslip, and the pale primrose.
Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire
Mirth, and youth, and warm desire!
Woods and groves, are of thy dressing;
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.

~Song on May Morning by John Milton

We wish you all a joyous Bealtaine & May Day for our readers in the North and a wonderful Samhain to those of you in the South! :)

We leave you with some music to enjoy:
