June Breeze

After humid heat,

breeze cools and dries leaves,

bringing quiet peace.

A Pride-Day Rondel

After storms, June arrives;

the sun returns, the pride comes back:

Flowers, people, dogs, and cats

dance up into dazzling life.

 

Into pools the swimmers dive;

marchers parade their way past.

After storms, June arrives;

the sun returns, the pride comes back.

 

Find beers and boys, it’s party time;

DJ, play our favorite tracks!

Everybody screams and claps.

The crowd’s like a hive of butterflies.

After storms, June arrives.

The sun returns, the pride comes back.
