This is for June and all the summers it brings
Wind chasing bells of a Church steeple ring
Olde songs of wedlock over top hat, and lace
'Fore June passes torch to July's scarlet face

Tree's are full jacket's...of multi-hue green
The last pink magnolia leaf still can be seen
Theres a breeze in the air, carrying a scent
Of sweet honeysuckle....fresh efflorescence

Still, nights cast a chill; June has its motive
An inviting warm flame....bright amorous votive
Moonlite romance...'neath a nautic June breeze
Make love in June sparkle like starshine on sea

Link of the week:Austin's own Dale Watson played on David Letterman last Monday.
