May day is a good time to promote love and happiness in your life. To do so, use pastel-colored candles, as many as possible, and a large bowl of fresh water with flower petals floating in it. Adorn your ritual space with flowers and new leaves, and sing the following verse to the spirits of the holiday:
Queen of the May,
A more joyous time has never been.
and children sing,
Fairies bless each river and sacred spring.
All life is joyous
and we revel,
In being healthy, happy, and alive.
The Morris Dancers
Stomp the Earth,
Wakening Gaia with blissful mirth.
in vibrant hue,
Signaling all Earth's life is born anew.
Magic springs underfoot from the ground.
Love and passions
fill the air,
Celebration and revelry is everywhere.
On this day,
My true love come to me; Let us share our hearts in festivity.
the Maypole round,
Laughter and music freely abound.
Joyousness and reverence mix together now,
Blessing virgin, bird, and cow.
Danu's Fairy Folk now draw near,
Their laughter and magic is growing clear.
I share this day
with those I love,
Healing Sun streams from above.
the Queen of the May,
So blessed be this sacred day.
So mote it be.
