Text heard on Sample:
First, April, she with mellow showers
Opens the way for early flowers,
Then after her comes smiling May
In a more rich and sweet array,
Next enters June and brings us more
Gems than those two that went before,
Then (lastly), July comes and she more
Wealth brings in than all those three.
Robert Herrick
