First of May

Many thanks to The Second Rate Poet for reminding me of this ditty:

Hooray! Hooray!
The first of May,
Outdoor fucking
Begins today

Good luck to you, if that is your sort of thing.

I must admit, my current frame of mind is more in keeping with this piece of mediaeval plainsong:

dum torpescit ver a solo
while spring lies hard in the earth
tepet amor pecorum
the lust of the cattle is cold
Numquam amans sequi volo
But as a lover I will never follow
vices temporum
the changes of the season
bestiali more
in the manner of beasts
