THE SUCCESSION OF THE
FOUR SWEET MONTHS.
by Robert Herrick
FIRST, April, she with mellow showers|
Opens the way for early flowers ;
Then after her comes smiling May,
In a more rich and sweet array ;
Next enters June, and brings us more
Gems than those two that went hefore :
Then (lastly) July comes, and she
More wealth brings in than all those three.
