May Day, May Day…

May Day, May Day…

You are still my May Queen
I watch sweat bead your upper lip
as you labour
and I sweat
during the course of the day
waiting to sweep you off your feet
after the Spring clean
and make you spin around my May Pole
lay you down, later
on the green
where the butterflies dream and flutter
with you not only in or on my mind
but in my arms in abandon, utter.
