May Day and the Day of May 

When the homeless don’t have to worry 

about the cold at night, 

and the days get longer 

as we wait on the first Day of May 

for the summer to begin, 

and our only worry is to beat the heat. 

Oh but those Days of May 

when life is all abloom 

and the nights under the stars 

are like cool breezes in your living room 

with trees shading the moonlight- 

Being homeless doesn’t feel so bad in those Days of May. 

If only every day could be a May Day.
