Enter, June; I’m filled with anticipation.
Flutter in on me! Like a lovely lark, come
trilling. Weariness has been long time on my
shoulders. Come thrill me!
Bring with you the moon and your passion. Yes, the
lovers’ moon that poets so often sing of.
Winter brought me nothing but dreariness. I
need to be glowing.
Hurry, June, and bring very soon the summer’s
sun, for spring has been endless rain upon my
pane. Dispel the gloom! Please appear, dear June, and
warmly embrace me.
