She was a curious girl, a wanderer, who spent her
summers chasing fluttering pieces of prose and
eating strawberries.

"Tis moonlight, summer moonlight
All soft and still and fair;
The solem hour of midnight
Breathes sweet thoughts everywhere

– by Emily Bronte

Have you ever loved a rose,
And watched her slowly bloom;
and as her petals would unfold,
you grew drunk on her perfume.

DREAM SONG


Sunlight, moonlight,
Twilight, starlight –
Gloaming at the close of day,
And an owl calling,
Cool dews falling,
In a wood of oak and may.

– by Walter de la Mare

DUSK... MIDSUMMER


No longer is the road a tinsel strand
Whereon a line of moto-cars flash by,
No longer is the August sun a brand
Upon the smooth blue surface of the sky.
And where has heat and wind-blown dust, is peace
Of shadows now; where clamor, is repose
Of summer twilight and a slow release
Of dew on bracken and on briar rose.

The rising moon unthreads the tangled way
Of brooks, cows cross a meadow on a path
And trees are silhouetted, wistful-gray,
Against the sunset's yellow aftermath,
While squares of lamplight over window-sills
Betray the small farm houses on the hills.

– by Ethel Romig Fuller

JULY


By reedy river side
Where swans do take their rest,
July, with languid steps,
Comes forth so richly drest.

For all the summer tints
Are woven in her dress;
A girdle spun of gold
Her dainty waist doth press.

– by Beatrice Crane


 

Yours truly,


Siiri
