    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?

    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!

    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”.

    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!

    And if he meant “rare” in the sense of barely cooked, I can think of better months.

    June in Southern California is yucky. Morning June Gloom, then hot afternoons and cold evenings. June is the most predictably cold month in SoCal. The most predictible month period in SoCal. Our one consistently yucky month.

    @Defunctdoormat “It’s a pretty perfect day here in Maine, today.”*

    While here in Denver, at 5:05 P.M., it is currently 95, dry as a bone, with a hot wind sucking all residual moisture out of everything. This is definitely hotter than what used to be “usual” hereabouts.
