the Maypole at Merry Mount

The Maypole at Merry Mount, source

"At harvest time, though their crop was of the smallest, they made an image with the sheaves of Indian corn, and wreathed it with autumnal garlands and bore it home triumphantly. But what chiefly characterized the colonists of Merry Mount was their veneration for the Maypole. It has made their true history a poet's tale".
Nathaniel Hawthorne
