June Muse - A Something in a Summer's Day



A something in a summer's Day
As slow her flambeaux burn away

Which solemnizes me.
A something in a summer's noon --



A depth --


an Azure --








a perfume --






Transcending ecstasy.


And still within a summer's night
A something so transporting bright


I clap my hands to see --
Then veil my too inspecting face
Lest such a subtle -- shimmering grace
Flutter too far for me --
....
- Emily Dickinson, A Something in a Summer's Day









Ah, June.

    Do you know the variety of lilies at the top? They look exactly like some mystery lilies in bloom in my garden.
