June’s Visit

 My Beetles in trappings of green brushed with gold

Bring with joy all the treasures my carriage can hold.

And thousands of flowers for the children I strew,

With Plenty for brides and sweet graduates too.

 

Attended with strains from Sir Cricket’s wee band

I scattered my posies with prodigal hand;

I regret that my sojourn on earth must end soon,

But each year you may look for a visit from June.

Lady Summer

 Summer is a countess fair

Clothed in shimmering sheen,

Rosy footsteps everywhere

Show where she has been.

Oberon’s Edict on St. Patrick’s Day

Observe, my Sprites, St. Patrick’s Day,

And wear a knot of green to-day,

Pay deference due the Emerald Isle

In shamrock frocks of latest style.

Blustering March Begins!

Cold blustering March is a surly young fellow,

But his face so forbidding and gloomy will mellow;

Though at first with his howls he makes every one shiver,

With warmth and delight he will soon be a-quiver.

For a sweet little lady is trailing his way,

And in spite of himself he is happy and gay;

Attended with sunshine and zephyrs and birds,

She is winning him over with soft, gentle words.
