June Days

“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;
Whether we look, or whether we listen,
We hear life murmur, or see it glisten;”

James Russell Lowell
What is So Rare as a Day in June

After yesterday’s post, I received this poem in its entirety from yet another friend “as good as springtime itself.” Soak in and savor the Summer Solstice! — VF
