Imagine May Day
Age Group: Adult
Imagine May Day
They say brazen witches arise, fly
dark Moon nights, stealthy, silent
in their joyous revelry.
Bonded to Earth, creation;
learning at mother's breast
to manage life's gifts and lessons.
Man may proclaim, may murder
for fealty, to swear allegiance to
their hunt's command.
They may elevate their One True King
to kneel and obey. They may employ
counting measure, ceremony and sacrifice,
taunting and torture or other trials
thus finding for each loyal swan a pond
to plunder, to parade in royal colour,
their place of pride.
Cruelty descends, more than tactic;
it is the enemy of joy, of flavor,
bonding, works of love and honor.
Yet men, on real ground, work companions
to soil and rain, engineers trained to each
moment's urgencies, philosophers of stone and mud,
reason and toil, persist. Their sinew and bone feed
the ages, build clay and richness on which
Wisdom knows the sweat of practiced movement,
flexible to unexpected barriers, able to modulate
quiet or loud as the crowd ebbs
or grows in credulity.
Where wisdom seeps through, counters
prevailing poisons, invigorates blood to nourish
minds and hearts, look there for blessing.
Arise, lovers! Bring forth better days,
ours to play in revelry,
to enjoy as neighbors our labors and our fruit.
Accept truth of magic; imagine life into this world.
