Quotes reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 413.
  • Do you recall that night in June
    Upon the Danube River;
    We listened to the ländler-tune,
    We watched the moonbeams quiver.
  • I gazed upon the glorious sky
    And the green mountains round,
    And thought that when I came to lie
    At rest within the ground,
    'Twere pleasant, that in flowery June,
    When brooks send up a cheerful tune,
    And groves a joyous sound,
    The sexton's hand, my grave to make,
    The rich, green mountain-turf should break.
  • What joy have I in June's return?
    My feet are parched—my eyeballs burn,
    I scent no flowery gust;
    But faint the flagging Zephyr springs,
    With dry Macadam on its wings,
    And turns me "dust to dust."
    • Thomas Hood, Town and Country, Ode Imitated from Horace.
  • June falls asleep upon her bier of flowers;
    In vain are dewdrops sprinkled o'er her,
    In vain would fond winds fan her back to life,
    Her hours are numbered on the floral dial.
  • And what is so rare as a day in June?
    Then, if ever, come perfect days;
    Then Heaven tries earth if it be in tune,
    And over it softly her warm ear lays.
  • So sweet, so sweet the roses in their blowing,
    So sweet the daffodils, so fair to see;
    So blithe and gay the humming-bird a-going
    From flower to flower, a-hunting with the bee.
  • It is the month of June,
    The month of leaves and roses,
    When pleasant sights salute the eyes
    And pleasant scents the noses.
