GARDEN BLOGGERS' MUSE DAY


AUGUST'S CROWN

Whilst August yet wears her golden crown

ripening fields lush bright with promise

Summer waxes long, then wanes

quietly passing her fading green glory

on to riotous Autumn.

-Michelle L. Thieme

  1. I really like your poem for August. I always wish summer (or spring, or fall, really) would last longer! Mine is up, I wrote my poem myself, this time!

  2. That's lovely Carolyn - both the picture and the quote :)

    My musing's turned to the apple harvest to come and I've discovered a new author and poem for this month.

    Can a poem about apples be sexy? Have a look and tell me what you think...

  4. August is really like this. I sort of dread August just thinking of how it usually is such hot weather. It is the end of summer. I look forward to autumn with all its glory.

    I have posted an August muse at Greenbow Gardens.

    Happy August to you.

  6. The stylized sun plaque on your fence fits this poem perfectly!

  9. Your August offering is wonderful Carolyn -- I love that sun. :) And the sentiment of the poem is so true...it seems like only yesterday we were all anticipating spring's first blooms.

    My post for GBMD is up as well. :)

  10. I agree with Lisa about August, but your poem is a fitting tribute to the last month of summer. My post is up now: http://mcgregorsdaughter.blogspot.com/2008/08/august.html.

  16. Both photo and poem (a favorite) are lovely and fitting, Carolyn ... a most 'bittersweet' time of the year for gardeners. Do enjoy the remains of summer ;)

  17. I like your poem. Here we are experiencing the very early signs of spring - dafodilles are coming out in my garden and if I'm lucky I manage to pick them before a possum eats them. They like fully grown flowers and the very young buds. I have pictures of the insides of our local possums died a lovely yellow colour. Em

  18. I like your autumn poem. We are just coming from winter into spring here and the daffodils in my garden are beinning do come out. If I am lucky I manage to pick them before the local possums get them. They like the young buds as well as the full blown flowers. I have pictures of their insides died a lovely sunny yellow.
