Give me all of June. I want
the spring of blue jay babies, mowed grass, baby carrots  

rooting. I want
fresh basil, wide white open magnolia flowers  

floating. I want
the solstice delivering summer, and syncopating rain in the creek all night 

rhyming. I want
the thickest green mountain forest trails that quiet jubilant voices

traveling. I want
you with me here loving all of June.
