Quotes about Summertime


I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer.  My bank of
wild grass is majestic and full of music.  It is a fire that solitude presses
against my lips.  ~Violette Leduc, Mad in Pursuit

Ah, summer,
what power you have to make us suffer and like it.  ~Russel Baker

are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.  ~James Dent

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
~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.

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

In June, as many as a dozen species
may burst their buds on a single day.  No man can heed all of these
anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.  ~Aldo Leopold

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
