Hello August!

august calendar
July... We'll be seeing you in a year!

So glad you passed by, 
you gave us beautiful picnic skies,
late mellow nights, 
watching midsummer nights, 
in quaint, secluded gardens,
barefoot, warm, green grass,  
mild patio afternoons, 
and we are grateful for that. 
How ever can we thank you?

August my dear friend! I must say, 
even though we are excited to see you again,
We would you like you here a little longer this time,
so please slow right down for us. 

Perhaps, you'll be taking us away,
to those places we long for, 
places with crimson sunsets,
laying behind undulating hill tops.
I can't wait to see what you've brought along.

And you my dear friends, 
what goodness has August brought along this time around?
