Once Upon a June #2

Once upon a June we were
The girls with flowers in our hair
And time on hands not quite as worn
By motherhood and
Many a summer morn

Once upon a dream or two
Eyes sparkled, lustrous as the dew
That gleamed before the door of noon
Closed on the wisp of
Many a moon and June

Once upon November’s eve
A woman’s heart begins to grieve
The suddenness of what once was
And cannot ever
Be again because

…once upon a June we were
But girls with flowers in our hair
Where now we watch our daughters swoon
With summer dreams of
  'once upon a June'
