AUGUST
[ Also see Months ]

Wear a Sardonyx or for thee
  No conjugal felicity.
    The August-born without this stone
      'Tis said must live unloved and lone.
      - Unattributed Author, August,
        in "Notes and Queries", May 11, 1889, p. 371

The August cloud . . . suddenly
  Melts into streams of rain.
      - William Cullen Bryant, Sella

In the parching August wind,
  Cornfields bow the head,
    Sheltered in round valley depths,
      On low hills outspread.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti,
        A Year's Windfalls

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