June Bud

Famous quotes containing the words june and/or bud:

    I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers,
    Of April, May, of June and July-flowers;
    I sing of May-poles, hock-carts, wassails, wakes,
    Of bridegrooms, brides and of their bridal cakes;
    I write of youth, of love, and have access
    By these to sing of cleanly wantonness;
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    the bud packed
    tight with its miracle swayed
    stiffly on breaths
    of air, moved

    as though impelled
    by stirrings within itself.
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)
