Poets Born In June
: : * * * * The photo is of Alfred Lord Tennyson. I wonder if anyone called him "Al." I'm thinking not.
Anyway, Tennyson was born in June, as were poets Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Judith Wright (Australian), and William Campbell (Canadian). I'm sure each was tempted at least one to rhyme "June" with "moon"; it's just an occupational hazard.
