June
 
Do you recall that night in June
  Upon the Danube River;
We listened to the ländler-tune,
  We watched the moonbeams quiver.
        Charles A. Aïdé—Danube River.
  1
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.
        Bryant—June.
  2
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.”
        Hood—Town and Country. Ode Imitated from Horace.
  3
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.
  4
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.
        Lowell—The Vision of Sir Launfal.
  5
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.
  6
It is the month of June,
  The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes
  And pleasant scents the noses.
        N. P. Willis—The Month of June.
