Queen of May

Form: Burns’ Stanza

She dances like a joyful child
My queen of May happy and mild
But deep inside her heart beats wild
In the warmth of late Spring
And within her beauty I smiled
As she began to sing
She leads me to the forest trees
To feel the first summery breeze
For my queen of May is a tease
Still I follow her call
I know she’ll bring me to my knees
Before she takes my all
A goddess comes again to play
Among flowers and sunshine ray
Perhaps she’s leading me astray
My heart is hers to tame
My love is strong, my queen of May
So willing, I play her game
