Summer Solstice

"Now summer is in flower and natures hum
Is never silent round her sultry bloom
Insects as small as dust are never done
Wi' glittering dance and reeling in the sun
And green wood fly and blossom haunting bee
Are never weary of their melody
Round field hedge now flowers in full glory twine
Large bindweed bells wild hop and streakd woodbine
That lift athirst their slender throated flowers
Agape for dew falls and for honey showers
These round each bush in sweet disorder run
And spread their wild hues to the sultry sun."

- "June" by John Clare


  1. I love the pinks and lemon yellows of June - have a wonderful Summer. xx

  2. Beautiful; hope your first day of summer wasn't a total heat wave! It was HOT here.
