Into the Sunshine
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

through the dim hallway
to bright blaze of better days
optimistic smile

interesting hues
and all are feeling warmth's touch
in sweet summer's glaze

sultry, rich August
when the roses are teeming

Queensland Opal
by Will. H. Ogilvie

Opal, little opal, with the red fire glancing,
   Set my blood a-spinning, set my pulse a-stir,
Strike the harp of memory, set my dull heart dancing
   Southward to the Sunny Land and the love of Her!

Opal, shining opal, let them call you luckless jewel,
   Let them curse or let them covet, you are still my heart's desire,
You that robbed the sun and moon and green earth for fuel
   To gather to your milky breast and fill your veins with fire!

A Loyal Spectator
by Ashraf Gohar Goreja

With a heavy, meek and humble heart,
He kept sitting after the games were over,
Shouting, cheering, howling
Heckling crowd were gone
But this, loyal spectator was left alone

He continuously heard strident, blasting blares
In his silently ringing, deafen ears
Tooting cheers coming from near and far distance
Couldn't make his lonesome world, happy and cheerful

The City Planners
by Margaret Atwood

Cruising these residential Sunday
streets in dry August sunlight:
what offends us is
the sanities:
the houses in pedantic rows, the planted
sanitary trees, assert
levelness of surface like a rebuke
to the dent in our car door.
No shouting here, or
shatter of glass; nothing more abrupt

In The Garden
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

One moment alone in the garden,
Under the August skies;
The moon had gone but the stars shone on, -
Shone like your beautiful eyes.
Away from the glitter and gaslight,
Alone in the garden there,
While the mirth of the throng, in laugh and song,
Floated out on the air.

You looked down through the starlight,

Just August
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

The fields are bursting
and jaded trees await fate,
among crowding blooms.
Moonlit nights attract mauve dreams.
The lusty year has ripened.

August Deep
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Gold bounces off sidewalks, and there's color on the trees,
Emerald hills are grassy and there's warmth in the breeze,
Red robin plays, and the blue jays have been flying all day,
While dragonflies frequent the pond in glad jeweled display!

Soon marmalade sun sits on a hill, honeybees are buzzing,
And romantic lovers in the park, ever so often are hugging,
The huge moon rises full, completely framed by green lace,
And blooms are August deep, in the late summer's embrace!

Beauty's Come Calling
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Perfume permeates August evening air,
Summer's abloom within night's shadow,
Deep purple gloom basks in moonlight,
And twinkling stars consume the skies,
Beauty eternally stalks night's room.

Warm Wednesday
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

daytime in August
in the middle of the week
scents of lavender

the sun came golden
on dinnerplate dahlias
blooming in all hues

afternoon August
weekday wandering in sun
