An' August Is...' Poem



 The first five days of August (I blinked and there they were!) served up a kaleidoscope of color!

August is a flower
August is a book
August is a lily-pad
Bordering the brook

August is a garden
In each dell and dip
August is a poem, love
Slipping from the lip

August is a rainbow
Caught in canning jars
August is a carefree girl
With eyes full of stars

August is a loafer
Pocket full of wish
August is an Artist
August is a fish

August is a peach pie
August is a boy
With gold-buttered freckles
Behind corn-buttered joy

August is a love song
August is a dash
Bare feet banter fading
Into silver splash

August is a wheat field
August is a door
Leading to a stair where
August is no more
