Joyful golden lady’s slippers, ready for the ball,

Undulating grasses, growing new-fawn tall;

Noses full of lilacs, scented evening breeze,

Elegantly emerald, quaking aspen trees.


What delights you about June?

  1. short and sweet, and full of rhythm and motion…. I love the first line, and also really like the sound of “undulating grasses” & “elegantly emerald”!

    Oh how lovely!! Not crazy about June, especially–anniversaries that carry baggage–but the 2nd half will surely be an improvement over the the first 2 weeks. Great acrostic work, Mel!!

    🙂 fantastic!

  4. I love June because it feels “fully summer”. The days are long and sunny, the garden is growing with gorgeous tomato plants and best of all, there are still almost 3 full months of warm, heavenly weather left here in the Northeast!

  5. For me…I guess the pool being 86 degrees. Just my kind of swimming temperature. 🙂

    A wonderful post! I’m ready for the summer ball too 🙂
    I love June – memories of summer vacation, excitement for my kids, enjoying the outdoors, windows open, summer breeze, willow trees, warm sun…I can go on & on….

  7. California June-gloom is actually resting, reflective and blooming all around !
