June is a Comedy|

What is so playful as a dayful of June
and so natural as buffoonery?
Tossing my senses to the solstice
I submit to full-moonery.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
courses through my veins
and I snicker at Robin Goodfellow
piping merry wanderers to harm's way.
June, you flood me still with mirth!
I drink your sweet honeysuckled
and sylvan breezes. I sway
to your strings and tamboureezes.
I put on my donkey ears
and ponder Shakespeare's plotless tale
and feel wonder and peace.
Yes, what fools we mortals be!
