The Four Sweet Months

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 that brings us more

Gems, than those two that went before;

Then lastly July comes and she

More wealth bring in than all those three

-Robert Herrick
