"Fairest of the months!  Ripe Summer's Queen.  The hey-day of the year with robes that gleam with sunny sheen.  Sweet August doth appear."  R. Combe Miller

"Whilst August yet wears her golden crown, ripening fields lush-bright with promise.  Summer waxes long then wanes quietly passing her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn."  Michelle L. Thieme

"How sociable the garden was.  We ate talked in given light.  The children put their toys to grass all the warm wakeful August night."  Thomas Gunn
