The sun is rich
   And gladly pays
In golden hours,
   Silver days,

And long green weeks
   That never end.
School's out.  The time
   Is ours to spend.

There's Little League,
   Hopscotch, the creek,
And, after supper,

That live-long light
   Is like a dream,
And freckles come
   Like flies to cream.

~ John Updike

June has always been one of my favorite months.  The fact that it's my birthday month probably has something to do with it, but it's more than that.  In his poem, Updike lists many of the things that I, too, love about June....

(Psst... if you haven't heard about the "Blue..." is Two! Birthday Contest yet, you can find all the details here.)
