It's May Again, Sam

- Rosie Cotton


It’s May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Like it was when Gandalf came
to tell of shadows from the past.
I will not forget.

It’s May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Green was the Stone
set on King Elessars’ brow.
I will not forget.

It’s May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Flowers Rosie wore in her hair
when she was married to you.
I will not forget.

It’s May again Sam
- fresh greens and flowers.
Fresh as a flower was little Elanor
sitting in the green of her first May.
I will not forget.

It’s May again Sam.
- fresh greens and flowers.
Seeds you gave me at our parting;
see what they have become –
Forget-me-nots.
