May Day

On the first of May,

every year, I've remembered

to give mom flowers.

As a little girl, each year on May 1, I brought my mom a bouquet of flowers. Walking home from grade school, this bouquet was sometimes made of yellow "dandies" and whiter clover but other times I managed to find tulips and lilacs. She always delighted in whatever I brought her and it was this delight that motivated my yearly gift. To this day, I've never forgotten.
