The May-pole is up, Now give me the cup; I'll drink to the garlands around it; But first unto those Whose hands did compose The glory of flowers that crown'd it. ~ from The Maypole, ca. 1660, by Restoration poet Robert Herrick
Two young women, one hidden, except for her skirt, by the Maypole and a garland of ribbons, ready it for the traditional celebration of love and fertility.
