June is a month that inspires poets the world around. James Russell Lowell wrote a long poem about June of which the first line has become—perhaps disproportionately—well known: "And what is so rare as a day in June?" But further on he says:
Now is the high-tide of the year,
And whatever of life hath ebbed away
Comes flooding back with a ripply cheer,
Into every bare inlet and creek and bay;
Now the heart is so full that a drop overfills it,
We are happy now because God wills it...
We wish you all happiness.
