A Walk in the Park

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.  ~Gertrude Jekyll


There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.  ~Celia Thaxter


In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.  ~Albert Camus

Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.  ~Henry James

I drifted into a summer-nap under the hot shade of July, serenaded by a cicadae lullaby, to drowsy-warm dreams of distant thunder.  ~Terri Guillemets
