Words on the Month of June

June's twice June since she breathed it with me.
Robert Browning, The Flower's Name.

The roses make the world so sweet,
      The bees, the birds have such a tune,
There's such a light and such a heat
And such a joy in June.
George McDonald, To ------.

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

How softly runs the afternoon
Beneath the billowy clouds of June!
Charles Hanson Towne, How Softly Runs.
