"May day dancing round the maypole"
My cousin Pauline is two years older than me and when we were younger I was in the infants and she was in the juniors, and on May day all the girls would dance round the maypole.
They all had on their prettiest dresses and shoes and danced round and round,
each girl holding onto a brightly coloured ribbon and
the ribbons were woven as they danced.
(hope you're not too dizzy!)
Just as I went into the juniors they stopped doing it and so I never got to dance round the maypole, and I was sooo upset.
Maybe I should make a maypole of my own and I can dance all day long... with my dodgy knees I don't think so!!!
This cloth belongs to sal of sals snippets, I love crinoline ladies and to see them dancing, and with all those pretty flowers, and the bright threads....I adore it.
Have a happy "May day"
Love Lucey xx
