A rainy Day

Another rainy day
It didn't start out that way
Still the drops began to fall
First one or two only a few
Enough to disturb the pollen
Then a shower to wash it away
Not to complain it's natures way
April shower to bring out flowers
Soon May and maiden's bowers
The May pole with ribbons gayly
Twined around in a lively dance
Light the Beltane fires
Drive the cattle between the pyres
Drum and dance the night away
Lovers lay together on fertile fields
Set the seeds let bounty grow
Another rainy day yes!
For with spring rain
The lengthening days
Come the May pole
And maiden's bowers
