Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The year has but one June, dear friend,
The year has but one June;
And when that perfect month doth end,
The robin's song, though loud, though long,
Seems never quite in tune.
The rose, though still its blushing face
May yet have lost that subtle grace--
That nameless spell the winds know well--
Which makes its garden queen.
Life's perfect June, love's red, red rose,
Have burned and bloomed for me.
Though still youth's
Though thou art kind, dear friend, I find
I have no heart for thee.
