On a brilliant night of June…

“Roses are red,
Violets are blue;
But they don’t get around
Like the dandelions do.”
Slim Acres

 “Tell you what I like the best —
‘Long about knee-deep in June,
‘Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, — some afternoon
Like to jes’ git out and rest,
And not work at nothin’ else!”
James Witcomb Riley, Knee Deep in June

 “There are moments, above all on June evenings, when the lakes that hold our moons are sucked into the earth, and nothing is left but wine and the touch of a hand.”
Charles Morgan

 “In a bowl to sea went wise men three,
On a brilliant night of June:
They carried a net, and their hearts were set
On fishing up the moon.”
Thomas Love Peacock

 “A summer’s sun is worth the having.”
French Proverb
