Feel the glory all through the year
Summer love sultry and sincere

Second decade now passed away
Thirties intoxicate like May
Childhood you have left behind
Gift of beauty matures like wine

With giggling girls boys do cavort
August men yearn for mature sport
Power of light, beauty of moon
At your great virtue Heaven swoons

No melancholy should you sing
As you ease to summer from spring
Summer flowers and heady brew
Bow in supplication to you

With potency she enraptures
Legions bow at woman’s power
Helen’s beauty, Athena’s part
Goddess of Aphrodite’s art

Feel the glory all through the year
Summer love sultry and sincere
