And June may be had by the poorest comer.

Hair geys lighter.
Skin gets darker.
Water gets warmer.
Nights get longer.
Music gets louder.
Life gets better.

nourishing Night!
Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night!
Walt Whitman

Harriet E. Prescott

Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.
