It will be Summer-eventually Emily Dickenson

It will be Summer—eventually.
Ladies—with parasols—
Sauntering Gentlemen—with Canes—
And little Girls—with Dolls—
-
Will tint the pallid landscape—
As 'twere a bright Bouquet—
Thro' drifted deep, in Parian—
The Village lies—today—
-
The Lilacs—bending many a year—
Will sway with purple load—
The Bees—will not despise the tune—
Their Forefathers—have hummed—
-
The Wild Rose—redden in the Bog—
The Aster—on the Hill
Her everlasting fashion—set—
And Covenant Gentians—frill—
-
Till Summer folds her miracle—
As Women—do—their Gown—
Of Priests—adjust the Symbols—
When Sacrament—is done—
-

Not for another five months yet.
Now we need the parapluis, and paravents :-)
Nice skies there and green grass.
Love the orioles. Thought those were cookies?

Lovely summer photo. And a wonderful poem by one of my favourite poets.

This is a beautiful and peaceful field/meadow that just calls me with my picnic basket to come, sit, eat, and just ejoy nature at it's best. You captured the image perfectly, and you chose the perfect poet and poet to tie your photo box up with a lovely bow. Great shot. Genie
