Down The Lanes Of August

DOWN the lanes of Augustâ??and the bees upon the wing,
All the world's in color now, and all the song birds sing;
Never reds will redder be, more golden be the gold,
Down the lanes of August, and the summer getting old.

Even if he has not the same skin color with you

This loving attitude gives you entire freedom

And with these sky-flakes down in flurry on flurry
There is more unmixed color on the wing
Than flowers will show for days unless they hurry.

The naked elm-boughs tossed and swung;

And Joseph Emmett thinks the crimson shame
On woman's cheek a trumpet-note of fame.

To O.e.a.

Your voice is the color of a robin's breast,
And there's a sweet sob in it like rain--still rain in the night.
Among the leaves of the trumpet-tree, close to his nest,
The pea-dove sings, and each note thrills me with strange delight

A bronze slowness becomes him. Patently
The page he contemplates he doesn't see.

By The Lake

The old fellow from Shao-ling weeps with stifled sobs as he walks furtively by the bends of the Sepentine on a day in spring. In
