AUGUST
August, with it's clouds of scented blooms,
August, with it's great stacks of giant clouds,
August, with corn plants standing like rows of soldiers,
August, with watermelons, full and heavy, dozing in the sun,
August.
-Mary Naylor

  AUGUST
AUGUST BRINGS SO MANY THINGS TO MIND
LIKE COUNTY FAIRS, WITH FUN, FOOD, RIDES, EASY TO FIND.
CATFISH SCREAM LOUDER THAN EVER FOR OUR FISHING POLES,
INVITING US TO JOYOUS JAUNTS AT OUR FAVORITE WATERING HOLE
THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER START DRAWING TO A CLOSE
THERE'S STILL TIME FOR A LAKE VISIT OR JUST A SPRINKLER HOSE.
AUGUST AUGUST, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ROLE IN THIS SUMMER
WITHOUT YOU NO DOUBT THE SEASON WOULD BE A REAL BUMMER.

AUGUST 
Look! the round-cheeked moon floats high,
In the glowing August sky,
Quenching all her neighbor stars,
Save the steady flame of Mars.
White as silver shines the sea,
Far-off sails like phantoms be,
Gliding o'er that lake of light,
Vanishing in nether night.
Heavy hangs the tasseled corn,
Sighing for the cordial morn;
But the marshy-meadows bare,
Love this spectral-lighted air,
Drink the dews and lift their song,
Chirp of crickets all night long;
Earth and sea enchanted lie
'Neath that moon-usurped sky.
  
-Emma Lazarus
