Welcome August and Goodbye july! #WelcomeAugust
Welcome August and Goodbye july! #WelcomeAugust Say hello August with me! In these divine pleasures permitted to me of walks in the August night under moon and stars, I can put my life as a fact before me and stand aloof from its honor and shame.
When my eyes are weeds,
And my lips are petals, spinning
Down the wind that has beginning
Where the crumpled beeches start
In a fringe of salty reeds;
When my arms are elder-bushes,
And the rangy lilac pushes
Upward, upward through my heart;
Summer, do your worst!
Light your tinsel moon, and call on
Your performing stars to fall on
Headlong through your paper sky;
Nevermore shall I be cursed
By a flushed and amorous slattern,
With her dusty laces’ pattern
Trailing, as she straggles by.
