For the May Queen

What does a May Queen look like?

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,

It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen. – Stairway to Heaven

Wait, does that make any sense?

So, does that mean, like, small fairy dudes are hoovering the dirt underneath your bushes? And the May Queen is some kind of fairy goddess inspecting the grounds?

And I’m supposed to be not alarmed that this is happening?

Google image search shows girls with flower dresses leading parades. I guess it’s an English thing. How is this the one piece of English culture that BBC America hasn’t exported to the US yet?

All these thoughts and more, as we wait in quarrantine for this pandemic to be over. At least I got a drawing done. I think it looks like whatever the hell a May Queen is supposed to be.

Any English people out there that can tell me how far off the mark I am? Do your gardens really clean themselves?

Hope you are all staying safe and sane while dealing with this new world of social distancing. Hopefully we can all find inspiration in the little things that bring humor into our lives.

Thanks for reading.
