"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Month of May

                          Mês de Maio
                 Almir Sater / Paulo Simões
Azul do céu brilhou
Mês de maio
Enfim chegou
Olhos vão se abrir
Pra tanta cor

É mês de maio
A vida tem seu esplendor

A luz do sol entrou
Pela janela
Me convidou pra tarde tão bela
E sem calor

É mês de maio
Saio e vou ver o sol se pôr

Horizonte de aquarela
Que ninguém jamais pintou
E enxame de estrelas
Diz que o dia terminou

Noite nem se firmou
E a lua cheia já clareou

Sombras podem ir
Façam o favor
É mês de maio
É tempo de ser sonhador

Quem não se enamorou
No mês de maio
Bem que tentou

E quem não tiver ainda amor
Dos solitários
O mês de maio é o protetor

Boa Terra velha esfera
Que nos leva aonde for
Pro futuro quem nos dera
Que te dessem mais valor
