" Fairest of the months!  Ripe summer's  queen the hey-day of the year with robes that gleam with sunny sheer sweet august doth appear."  
               ~R. Combe  Miller~

The brilliant poppy flaunts her head amidst the ripening grain, and adds her voice to see the song that August's here again."
            ~Helen Winslow~

"In august, the large masses of berries, which when in flower, had attracted many with bees, gradually assumed their bright velvety crimson here, and by their  weight again bent down and broke their tender limbs.
         ~Henry David Thoreau~

"August rushes by like desert rainfall, a flood of frenzied repheaval, expected but still catching me unprepared, like a matchflame bursting on the scene, heat and haze of crimson sunsets, like a dream of moon and dark barely recalled, a moment, shadows caught in  a blink.  Like a quick kiss; one wishes for more but it suddenly turns to leave, dragging summer away."
             ~Elizabeth Maria Taylor~

Wishing everyone a blessed and lovely August.
