    In that case, shouldn’t it be a day in February?

    I think she’ll reconsider in a couple of weeks.

    Is not that the day the Teddy bears have their picnic?

    August, Don’t forget August. :)

    Wrong perspective. June, early, still spring, not full summer heat, not overcooked . . . “rare”.

    I think Lowell must have lived in New England. If he’d lived in Washington, DC, he’d have picked a more bearable month – like April or October!

    @androscoggin

    Why do you think he moved to New England?

    Yeah, well, it’s 30 out of 365.25… not exactly commonplace!

    Judging by temperature, June days are less likely to be rare than to be well done.

    Try reading the poem in question before you comment. In the next sentence Lowell elaborates: “Then, if ever, come perfect days”.

    Caul field needs to learn about aesthetics.

    Caulfield isn’t the only black student. He also doesn’t have long hair.

    Wow! Frazz had to think for a second, maybe even two, to come up with that poet’s name. I’ll take it! Now if he’d said, “Come on, kid, why would I know that?”, it would have made my day.

    It’s a pretty perfect day here in Maine, today. Mid 70s, sunny, slightly breezy, low humidity, bugs aren’t bad yet, and mud is tame. Days like this are not all that common in June, but during other times of the year, they’re rarer still. Nice day for a walk, actually!
