WINDS OF MAY
by: James Joyce (1882-1941)
- INDS of
May, that dance on the sea,
- Dancing a ring-around in glee
- From furrow to furrow, while overhead
- The foam flies up to be garlanded,
- In silvery arches spanning the air,
- Saw you my true love anywhere?
- Welladay! Welladay!
- For the winds of May!
- Love is unhappy when love is away!
