Nature is booming and animals happily multiplying. June is about vivacity and colourfulness of life.
June is about the beginning of astronomical summer, summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and midsummer night celebration.
William Shakespeare: Midsummer Night’s Dream
The course of true love never did run smooth.
Lysander, Act I
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.
Oberon, Act II
Are you sure
That we are awake? It seems to me
That yet we sleep, we dream. Do not you think
The duke was here, and bid us follow him?
Demetrius, Act IV
