I visited a memory today

from many moons ago

This very first day of May

We sang and danced
around the maypole
that must have been
five stories tall
and my dear friend E—
chuckled as I looked up
in awe of swirling, winding ribbons

of crimson, fuchsia, and baby blue
and became a little dizzy as I always do
when I go round and round and round

I can hear the sounds
of flutes and shakers
announcing spring is here

a memory visited me today
this very first day of May
and one thing’s true
I still have you
my friend
to share this glance into yesteryear
