Longfellow's June From The Poet's Calendar

Well into two weeks of June, and we are barely two weeks away from crossing half way mark through yet another year! So, to lighten up our June: here's an excerpt from The Poet's Calendar by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The Poet's Calendar is a compilation of Longfellow's set of twelve beautiful poems, each song describing and narrating the essence of each of the twelve months of the calendar year.
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.
It is indeed the month of the longest days and the loveliest nights! If you want to read all the set of twelve songs, you can read it here: https://bit.ly/2YrS66R

Have a happy June!
