May Day flower craft inspired by Around the Year, a seasonal story by Elsa Beskow, at Palumba natural, non-toxic toys, art supplies, and Steiner books.

May comes dancing but once a year,

the dancing month,

the sky light and high,

the birch trees bursting.

May is daisy time, and cowslip and primrose and harebell and dancing anemones.

Deep down in the meadow grass,

they’re all dancing with delight,

lily-of-the-valley nodding,

ringing her bells,

the silver trunks lordly and slim,

their branches and silvery twigs

dancing too to the tune of Spring.

~Elsa Beskow, from Around the Year
