” Ah! Moon of my delight, that knows no wane,/The moon of Heaven is rising once again!/ How often, in times after, shall she look/Through this same garden, after us—in vain!”
—Fitzgerald, The Rubayiat
Tonight is the June full moon, known as the strawberry moon, and indeed the wild strawberries must be just on the verge of ripeness.
And, the fireflies are almost at peak activity. I’m hoping they’ll be at their most active for my Solstice Party this Saturday, and we can walk down to the bonfire through a field as full of twinkling stars as the sky.
O Ratty, I wish you were here!
