Answer July, by Emily Dickinson

Emily always comes through for us – here’s a poem for this month!

Answer July—
Where is the Bee—
Where is the Blush—
Where is the Hay?

Ah, said July—
Where is the Seed—
Where is the Bud—
Where is the May—
Answer Thee—Me—

Nay—said the May—
Show me the Snow—
Show me the Bells—
Show me the Jay!

Quibbled the Jay—
Where be the Maize—
Where be the Haze—
Where be the Bur?
Here—said the Year— 

I hope you are all finding safe ways to get outdoors especially in our cooler mornings and evenings. We are missing our regular trip to San Diego so I guess I’ll have to spend more time exploring our own river here in Sacramento. Stay well, Readers!
