Jun 22 - Jul 22
The daisy, by the shadow that it casts,
Protects the lingering dewdrop from the sun.
The sign that’s the first one of summer
Is yours of Cancer’s birth;
And you, like this wonderful season,
Bring gifts of great joy to the earth.
You are the zodiac’s “teacher,”
Of which there are always too few,
And you relish each moment of sharing
This gift that was given to you.
Your gentle, affectionate nature
Is the key to your charm and grace
That makes you always a welcome guest
And lights up the dreariest place.
Your security lies in tradition
So you cling to the tried and true;
Heirlooms, antiques and soft colors
Are especially favored by you.
Maternal, paternal and loving,
Your deepest desire is to serve,
And the good deeds you do unto others
Bring you joys you so richly deserve.
