Day 316: June

Peacock Daze - by Josephine Wall

'I am the fairest daughter of the year'...

Today is the first of June and this verse explains the month's beauty to a lovely sunny tee I think. 

June (from 'The Poet's Calendar') - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mine is the Month of Roses; yes, and mine
The Month of Marriages! All pleasant sights
And scents, the fragrance of the blossoming vine,
The foliage of the valleys and the heights.
Mine are the longest days, the loveliest nights;
The mower's scythe makes music to my ear;
I am the mother of all dear delights;
I am the fairest daughter of the year.
