HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Now is the month of Maying

When merry lads are playing,
Fa la la la la la la la la,
Fa la la la la la lah.
Each with his bonny lass
Upon the greeny grass.
Fa la la, etc...

The Spring, clad all in gladness,
Doth laugh at Winter's sadness,
Fa la la, etc...
And to the bagpipe's sound
The nymphs tread out their ground.
Fa la la, etc...

Fie then! why sit we musing,
Youth's sweet delight refusing?
Fa la la, etc...
Say, dainty nymphs, and speak,
Shall we play barley-break?
Fa la la etc...

 

... but that's enough fa la la-ing ... let's get on with chatting ...

    And a pinch and a punch for the first of the month ... and no returns!

    I've been waiting for 20 minutes to give someone else the chance to be first, but too late, it's me after all.  Hi Dove. I don't know your little song, but it sounds good.image

    To be honest, when I saw Hosta was up early I'd half hoped that he'd be the first to post so we could crown him with a garland as our May Queen, but he'll have to wait for next year now image

     

    Here's some info Pat https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Now_Is_the_Month_of_Maying

    we used to sing it in school choir, but I don't remember the double entendres being explained to us image

    It's a lovely song to sing - there's lots of versions on You Tube image

    Morning Dove, Keen and Pat. And for those to come too.

    A pinch and a kick for being so quick! image

    Woke up with the sun pouring through the curtains, it looks beautiful out there. Hopefully get out in the garden for a bit before the family arrives. 

    I've not heard of your little song either Dove.

    Have a lovely Sunday everyone.

    Take care, TTFN xx
