Pole dancing queens







It is Beltane, Calan Mai, May Day, whatever - the time to celebrate flowers, dancing, light... and Queens!

And poles.



From May Morning by A.E. Housman:
How clear, how lovely bright,
How beautiful to sight
Those beams of morning play;
How heaven laughs out with glee
Where, like a bird set free,
Up from the eastern sea
Soars the delightful day.


Happy May Day!

Needless to say, here it is raining.

    1. It's been a typical Bank Holiday - pouring down all day, then blue skies in time for the sun to go down. Hey ho. Jx

    1. Ironically, just as I am readying myself for the gloom of the office, there's nary a cloud in the sky over London... Jx

  4. I can barely remember the last time I danced around a Maypole - it must have been when I was at infant school. I just loved winding that ribbon around the pole. A sign of things to come...
