Mom, I’m Going to the Park to See the Strawberry Moon!

Talk to me Strawberry Moon,
Tell me what you’ve seen.
Do people celebrate your strawberry hue
And your mellow rosy sheen?

I only meet you once a year.
What have you done since last June?
Did you dress up to visit other months,
To feel that weather too?

Strawberry Moon,
In June do you drink?
Cherry wine, rose champagne,
Or lemonade that’s pink?

And where do you go
When the June night ends?
Do you take off your strawberry suit
And leave to make new friends?
