Ode to June

You are the shade of laughter
The colors of your sighs
Burst into bloom with flowers
You are earth's paradise

You murmur in the willow
You whisper in the pine
And in the maple tree you dance
You dream in columbine

With peony and lupine
You open summer’s gate
We are a world of children
Where long-held dream-lands wait

Your cape is made of roses
How comely is your smile
Your morning is a chorus
That sweeps earth’s emerald isle

You are a sprite, a flower
A lush and lilting tune
That unravels the hour
And thus unravels June
