The Lusty Month Of May

The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth
to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees
bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart
that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty
deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage,
that lusty month of May.
- Sir Thomas Malory, Le Morte d'Arthur, 1485

Oh! indeed. Born at the end of May but having Mars and Venus in earlier May degrees I always 'knew' in ways that frightened my little christian heart. Blessedly I was freed from that by my bigger May born soul & spirit. Yes a very Lusty month indeed!!
