"Warm summer sun, shine kindly here;
Warm southern wind, blow softly here;
Green sod above, lie light, lie light -
Good night, dear heart, good night, good night."
- Mark Twain
"When summer opens, I see how fast it matures, and fear it will be short; but after the heats of
July and August, I am reconciled, like one who has had his swing, to the cool of autumn."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
But still catching me unprepared.
Like a match flame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more
But it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away."
- Elizabeth Maua Taylor, August
I am sorry that school is starting so early for so many of you....
There should be a law!
And if I were the King of the World....it would be so....
