A 'favorite' time of year

"The world's favorite season is the spring.  All things seem possible in May."
-  Edwin Way Teale

Happy May Day.  It’s  always seemed to be an inspirational month for writers and – lucky for me –  it’s also the month of my birth.  So to start the celebration, I share a couple of quotes, and this neat little Ode from English poet William Watson, first published,  coincidentally, on May Day.

Ode in May
"What is so sweet and dear
As a prosperous morn in May,
The confident prime of the day,
And the dauntless youth of the year,
When nothing that asks for bliss,
Asking aright, is denied,
And half of the world a bridegroom is,
And half of the world a bride?"
-  William Watson

"Spring is God's way of saying, 'One more time!' "  -  Robert Orben  
Let the celebrating begin.
