The Merry Month of May…and Moms

The Merry Month of May…and Moms

Welcome to the merry month of May! I’ve often wondered where that expression came from, where the origin began. Well, to my surprise, there were dozens of references, songs, and old folklore of Love.
“The Merry Month of May” is a poem by Thomas Dekker (c. 1572–1632), an English Elizabethan dramatist and pamphleteer. “The Merry Month of May” is a part of Dekker’s play, The Shoemaker’s Holiday, first performed in 1599. In Ernest Rhys‘s 1887 publication of Dekker’s work, he titled the poem “The First Three-Men Song.”
Reading all those lyrics and poems, I am cherishing every moment of May to come.
Of course, May is also the month of flowers and green.
Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 14th) wouldn’t be complete and celebrated without love and flowers. Daffodils, roses, lilies of the valley, peonies, tulips, etc., just to name a few.
No month of May would be complete without saying and honor, to all those who care for the world. There are “mothers” who don’t have children by birth. They give so much to make the world feel a little more Love.
Whether your mom is in spirit, or kicking up her heels, Love is truly felt throughout the world. To add to the merry month of May, honor to tribute the caretakers. Send out those flowers, and thoughts of Love!
Of course, how can I not be partial to May? It’s the month of my birth! And I will celebrate!!!!!
