JUNE
[ Also see Months ]

Who comes with Summer to this earth
  And owes to June her day of birth,
    With ring of Agate on her hand,
      Can health, wealth, and long life command.
      - Unattributed Author, June,
        in "Notes and Queries", May 11, 1889, p. 371

Do you recall that night in June
  Upon the Danube River;
    We listened to the landler-tune,
      We watched the moonbeams quiver.
      - Charles Hamilton Aide, Danube River

I gazed upon the glorious sky
  And the green mountains round,
    And thought that when I came to lie
      At rest within the ground,
        'Twere pleasant, that in flowery June
          When brooks send up a cheerful tune,
            And groves a joyous sound,
              The sexton's hand, my grave to make,
                The rich, green mountain-turf should break.
      - William Cullen Bryant, June

What joy have I in June's return?
  My feet are parched--my eyeballs burn,
    I scent no flowery gust;
      But faint the flagging zephyr springs,
        With dry Macadam on its wings,
          And turns me "dust to dust."
      - Thomas Hood,
        Town and Country--Old Imitated from Horace

June falls asleep upon her bier of flowers;
  In vain are dewdrops sprinkled o'er her,
    In vain would fond winds fan her back to life,
      Her hours are numbered on the floral dial.
      - Lucy Larcom, Death of June (l. 1)

And what is so rare as a day in June?
  Then, if ever, come perfect days;
    Then Heaven tries earth if it be in tune,
      And over it softly her warm ear lays.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        The Vision of Sir Launfal

No price is set on the lavish summer;
  June may be had by the poorest comer.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        The Vision of Sir Launfal
         (pt. I, prelude)

So sweet, so sweet the roses in their blowing,
  So sweet the daffodils, so fair to see;
    So blithe and gay the humming-bird a going
      From flower to flower, a-hunting with the bee.
      - Nora Perry, In June

It is the month of June,
  The month of leaves and roses,
    When pleasant sights salute the eyes
      And pleasant scents the noses.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis, The Month of June
