Mr. August walks around his countryside ensuring everything is going to natures plan. After looking he finds all is good and thanks his special friends.

Mr. August

Mr. August, the mature man with shining golden hair the color of a ripe cornfield,
He is slightly graying at the temples but his eyes are clear pools of deepest blue,
There are hard lines in his face, they are deep, he's strong it's part of who he is
He stands and looks around him heavy hands on his hips a tall man of rural beauty,

His serene presence hints of much wisdom a good age make his company so delightful,
Casting his eyes as far as can be seen he smiles because all is right for this time,
The rich soils are dry and pillows of clouds wisp across light blue turquoise skies,
The dark greenness of the fields, the meadows and the pastures are strong and sweet.

He watches cattle grazing on the richest grasses and they low because they are well,
The day warms and the cows lay easy, chewing cud a sight worthy of a painter’s hand,
Warm breezes temper the sun as a second spring is flowing through the healthy trees,
He nods to the mighty oak the king of the woods and forests and the trees wave back.

His eyes catch heather on the moors and the dust devils on the heath's new flowers,
They are all there in fine form, dog roses, blue chicory, hawk weed and honeysuckle,
And as he stands nearer he breathes sweet perfumes from his August summer gardens,
Looking to his glades knee deep in grass the blue campanula dances a flowers dance.

Nuts growing fast they are fat and green they hang in the tall hedges and woodlands,
There are more nuts in trees along old woodland lanes and deep in the dark forests,
He salutes the fading roses and kneels down to thank them they have done their duty,
Then waves goodbye to the foxglove with a warm smile and thanks her with a blown kiss.

Did the Foxglove blush, just a little?


Kiss, Kisses, Meadow, Meadows, Meadowsweet, Trees, Trees Play, Trees Sky

He stood with dark shades,
With Melting eyes.
Bringing back the love,
The energy ties.
There he sat chewing,
In his self pity and mess.
For she was just everything,
The girl in tress.
The dog was with her,
Smiling by her side.
Showing No Fear,
With nothing to hide.
He was there lowing,
Showing love from heart.
It was melody of music,
Don't ever from me part.
Now the brought out the brand,
Just for all now to see.
The energy of life,
Flowing thoroughly.
For the cows were now looking,
With Eyes All Brown.
As the Creator was walking,
With eyes looking down.
He was in the wrong,
While the cows ate well.
He had just woken up,
Now seeing the hell.
He was now caring,
For the herd now to see.
He had brought calves,
From ALL the cows for free.
Maintaining his dear cows,
Who had love from Crown.
It sent the Creator,
All spiraling down.
For the place of existence,
Was known to the bull,
Who thought the pretty Cow,
Was a big fool.
Only to find,
The real fool was he.
For all his little calves,
Looked just like me.
