August
 
The August cloud  *  *  *  suddenly
Melts into streams of rain.
        Bryant—Sella.

In the parching August wind,
  Cornfields bow the head,
Sheltered in round valley depths,
  On low hills outspread.
        Christina G. Rossetti—A Year’s Windfalls. St. 8.

Dead is the air, and still! the leaves of the locust and walnut
Lazily hang from the boughs, inlaying their intricate outlines
Rather on space than the sky,—on a tideless expansion of slumber.
        Bayard Taylor—Home Pastorals. August.
