Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Summer
 
Then, crown’d with flowery hay, came rural joy,
And summer, with his fervid-beaming eye.
        Burns.—Brigs of Ayr.
  1
From bright’ning fields of æther fair disclosed,
Child of the sun, refulgent summer comes,
In pride of youth, and felt through nature’s depth.
        Thomson.—Summer, Line 1.
  2
Then came the jolly summer, being dight
In a thin silken cassock, coloured green,
That was unlined all, to be more light.
        Spenser.—The Fairy Queen, Book VII. Canto 7.
