Just as April showers bring May flowers told
So comes the June bugs and the fireflies gold
All creatures great or small renew in each wold
Deer wander far and wide no matter the land
Even where the city dwellers make their strands
Of houses, shops and businesses they think grand
Nature has the toughest hold we can't deny
Though as Summers go it always seems to fly
Too brief a season, too brief as lovers sky
Today there is a Milk Moon, tomorrow Rose
For many are the names under skies we know
So may the strawberry scented days ne'er go
