summer solstice quotes

It is summer, it is the solstice
the crowd is
All stars stand close in summer air
And tremble, and look mild as amber;
Summer involves going down as a steep flight of steps
To a narrow ledge over the water. Is this it, then,
The things we did last summer, I'll remember all winter long.
Farther in summer than the birds,
Pathetic from the grass,
A minor nation celebrates
Its unobtrusive Mass.
To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie--
True Poems flee--
On the idle hill of summer,
Sleepy with the flow of streams,
Autumn has caught us in our summer wear....
My mother, who hates thunderstorms,
Holds up each summer day and shakes
And I her son, though summer-born
And summer-loving, none the less
Am easier when the leaves are gone....
