Summer

Summer (/ˈsʌmər/ SU-mər) is the warmest of the four temperate seasons, between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, culture, and tradition, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.

Famous quotes containing the word summer:

    Sweet Thames, run softly, till I end my song.
    The river bears no empty bottles, sandwich papers,
    Silk handkerchiefs, cardboard boxes, cigarette ends
    Or other testimony of summer nights. The nymphs are departed.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Our Summer made her light escape
    Into the Beautiful.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    To see the Summer Sky
    Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie—
    True Poems flee—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
