PRAISE FOR A SUNNY DAY IN SUMMERTIME

A hymn from childhood. The month may be wrong, but the weather is spot on. Maybe  this is not what it was like in May, but what it should have been had we been luckier. This was lovely Levengrove Park in Dumbarton today in the sunshine with its wonderful trees clothed in green and beauteous bloom of flowers.  Bill Heaney

The sun is shining brightly 
The trees are clothed with green 
The beauteous bloom of flowers 
On ev’ry side is seen 
And all the world is gay 
For ’tis the month of Mary 
The lovely month of May 

There’s music in the heavens 
For birds are singing there 
And nature’s songs and praises 
Are sounding through the air 
With joy we’ll sing today 
For ’tis the month of Mary 
The lovely month of May 

And when night closes o’er us 
And twinkling stars appear 
The chaste moon calmly reigneth 
In skies so bright and clear 
In heaven far away 
There reigns o’er saints and angels 
Our lovely Queen of May
