O suns and skies and clouds of June,
Clear DotAnd flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
Clear DotOctober's bright blue weather.

When loud the bumblebee makes haste,
Clear DotBelated, thriftless vagrant,
And Golden Rod is dying fast,
Clear DotAnd lanes with grapes are fragrant;

When Gentians roll their fringes tight,
Clear DotTo save them for the morning,
And chestnuts fall from satin burrs
Clear DotWithout a sound of warning.

When on the ground red apples lie
Clear DotIn piles like jewels shining,
And redder still on old stone walls
Clear DotAre leaves of woodbine twining;

When all the lovely wayside things
Clear DotTheir white-winged seeds are sowing,
And in the fields, still green and fair,
Clear DotLate aftermaths are growing;

When springs run low, and on the brooks,
Clear DotIn idle golden freighting,
Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush
Clear DotOf woods, for winter waiting;

When comrades seek sweet country haunts,
Clear DotBy twos and twos together,
And count like misers, hour by hour,
Clear DotOctober's bright blue weather.

O suns and skies and flowers of June,
Clear DotCount all your boasts together,
Love loveth best of all the year
Clear DotOctober's bright blue weather.
