For Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandy Scheuer & William Schroeder It’s May, and the tulips stand up in their beds. The bleeding hearts cascade in lovely trills off soft green stems. The magnolia stretches out gnarled branches that explode with pink and white cups of perfume.
And, everywhere, forget-me-nots raise thousands of tiny blue hats to remind us that— it’s May. It’s May.
