August's Claim to Fame

A Spring wind serves to push the cold away,
to bring warm breeze,
to melt the snow
make room for sunny days.

With thunder the heavens heave.
Rain and lightning bring forth Summer Leaves.
We find time to lolly-gag 'midst our helter-skelter,
From Summer's heat, beneath these leaves
we seek relief from the sun's swelter.

Autumn winds undo Spring's efforts,
its breezes swirling round
bring Spring's leaves and Summer's shelter
down to ground.
The trees stripped bare---
now Winter's breath chills the air.

Dead leaves beneath Winter's fallen snow,
waiting once more for Spring's wind to blow.
