Local Woman Pens Ode to July, 1914

“July,” a Poem by Peggy,” published in the Thursday, July 23, 1914, issue of the High Point Review

Summer’s roof is endless clear,
   Thousands starry lamps appear,
In a stretch of brilliant beams,
   July’s drapery it seems,
Is the fairest noiseless trail,
   That colored flowers can hail,
Festooned blossoms loosely blown,
   Floating drifting whirling show,
Warble is an unknown voice
   July is glad nature’s choice.
