Quotable Sunday - On Summertime

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Ok, I know summer doesn't officially begin for another month, but it's starting to feel like summer around here, and the pool opened this weekend! We were too busy yesterday to make it there, but the new water slides are calling and if the rain holds off today, we'll be splashing our way toward summer!

Here are a few quotes on summer, my favorite season of the year. I hope you enjoy them:

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance. ~Bern Williams

Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there.
~Francis Thompson

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.
~Emily Dickinson

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade. ~Gertrude Jekyll

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way
I have to go to bed by day.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there.
~John Vance Cheney

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. ~Albert Camus

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. ~Celia Thaxter

The summer night is like a perfection of thought. ~Wallace Stevens

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. ~Sam Keen

Oh, the summer night
Has a smile of light
And she sits on a sapphire throne.
~Barry Cornwall

My kids feel the same way Robert Louis Stevenson did, and it's very hard to convince them that it's time for bed when it's still light outside!

Great summer quotes! :)
