JULY IN MONTANA, by                    
First Line: Green sanctuaries in the hills
Last Line: Gay coronets for all!
Subject(s): Montana; Summer

Green sanctuaries in the hills,
Alluring, pure and sweet,
Across the winter's snow, my dream,
In summer, my retreat.
Belated dawns that struggle through
The aisles of woodlands dim,
That stretch to noon-tide's royal light,
And on to sunset's rim.
Pale columbines with trumpets set,
Pipe through those temples fair,
St. Catherine's lace with incense burns,
And harebells ring for prayer.
O summer, in Montana's hills,
So far from winter's thrall,
With blooms that reach from base to ridge,
Gay coronets for all!
