May blossom near Close Lea
May blossom near Close Lea
The Hawthorn has long been a potent symbol of rebirth and appears, as May, in other old rhymes; for example, 'Here we go gathering nuts in May'. That is probably a corruption of 'here we go gathering knots of May [blossom]'. After all, there are no nuts to collect in England until Autumn - certainly not in May.

“Mark the fair blooming of the hawthorn tree;
Who finely clothed in a robe of white,
Feeds full the wanton eye with May’s delight;”
William Browne (1845)
