Our Young Folks contains much that would appeal to children and adults alike, including stories presented in serial form, poetry, challenging puzzles, and beautiful engravings like the one shown here. The May 1866 issue contains an article of particular interest on this date. “May-Day” describes the origins of the festival and the ways in which the English celebrated this event in earlier days, including the custom of raising the May-pole. The article also features the lyrics of songs that would have been heard during these celebrations.
“May, sweet May, again is come,
May, that frees the land from gloom;
Children, children, up and see
All her stores of jollity!”
