Poem by Annette Wynne

"Why was June made?"

Why was June made?—Can you guess?

June was made for happiness!

Even the trees Know this, and the breeze

That loves to play

Outside all day,

And never is too bold or rough,

Like March's wind, but just a tiny blow's enough;

And all the fields know

This is so—

June was not made for wind and stress,

June was made for happiness;

Little happy daisy faces

Show it in the meadow places,

And they call out when I pass,

"Stay and play here in the grass."

June was made for happy things,

Boats and flowers, stars and wings,

Not for wind and stress,

June was made for happiness!
