The Month of June

A Child's Calendar

In keeping with tradition, here's John Updike's take on June. 


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,

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