Famous quotes containing the words jordan and/or june:

    To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
    —June Jordan (b. 1939)

    I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers,
    Of April, May, of June and July-flowers;
    I sing of May-poles, hock-carts, wassails, wakes,
    Of bridegrooms, brides and of their bridal cakes;
    I write of youth, of love, and have access
    By these to sing of cleanly wantonness;
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
