To August by Myra Morris

| No TrackBacks
Stand on tiptoe, August! --
   Elfin August, slim and proud,
With the pale clematis blossom
   Like a shroud,
   A filmy shroud
That the flying winds have woven
   Out of the tangled threads of cloud!

Dance down every gully
   Where the green-hoods are in bloom,
Where the hillside heath is rosy
   In the gloom!
   Oh, no more gloom!
For your rain-wet feet are dancing,
   Dancing wild on Winter's tomb!
