Farewell August...

Farewell August
Days of cloudless skies
Cicadas songs
Brilliant star filled nites
Late evening air so rich and dense 
it's nearly liquid

Farewell August
Days of baking sun
Tomato ripening
Watering can filling (and emptying)
In continual cycles

Farewell August
Days of peak summer green
And yellow corn
Fields of berries red and blue
(A temptation to make jam)

Farewell August
Days of summer porch
Every window open nites
Rounds of deep resounding thunder
And watermelon for two....
