Strawberry Moon

A strawberry roan has a pinkish tone
while a strawberry moon just means June

Riding home on a full moon night
you can check it out by the full moon's light

According to the Farmer’s Almanac: “The June full Moon got the name “Strawberry Moon” from a number of North American native tribes, since the wild strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) reaches peak ripeness and is ready for harvesting in June. The berry is widespread throughout the lower 48 states, Canada, and Alaska, and is a popular and important spring edible as one of the earliest ripening berries.”
