When I was 17, I was privileged to be living in Oxford and young enough to go and join the Mayday Morning celebrations down by the Thames. I went down before 5am on a glorious spring morning and joined in the celebrations - going punting on the Cherwell and enjoying the pubs opening at 6am. It was truly magical and will stay with me till the day I die. Right up there with the Moody blues playing as the sun set at the 1970 IOW festival - some things cannot be ever repeated..
This tune is me, reflecting on that memory from the age of almost 70 - and wishing I could be that "callow youth" once again...
