The fairy lights have all gone out,
The darkness lingers now.
Summer’s vacation is ending soon
As she takes her final bow.
No, I will not think of that time.
No, now I will rejoice for such,
Are the warm, quiet August days
I treasure oh so much.

In August I start to see less and less critters in the garden. The fireflies are gone, and darkness comes sooner each day as we move toward fall. But still there is a peaceful, quiet in the garden as August lingers.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The sunflower pictures are from a sunflower that comes back every year. In The Language of Flowers, sunflowers are a symbol happiness. The picture below is of my garden behind the picket fence in all its August blooms.
I leave you with a few additional words about August Days. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
