C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • And what is so rare as a day in June?
  • Then, if ever, come perfect days;
  • Then heaven tries earth if it be in tune,
  • And over it softly her warm ear lays.
  • Lowell.

  • It is the month of June,
  • The month of leaves and roses,
  • When pleasant sights salute the eyes
  • And pleasant scents the noses.
  • N. P. Willis.

  • June falls asleep upon her bier of flowers;
  • In vain are dewdrops sprinkled o’er her,
  • In vain would fond winds fan her back to life,
  • Her hours are numbered on the floral dial.
  • Lucy Larcom.
