Always in a whirl, from homemade bread to housework to work-work. Come join the fun, the mess, and don't be afraid to tell me if I'm not making any sense!

August by Elsa Beskow


August-the time of ripeness,
the corn glowing
the berries all ripening.

The magic stands guard,
the bilberries,
the raspberries,
and gooseberries,
the red and black currants,
the whortleberries,
cloudberries and more.

They dance in a ring,
the Berry Queen smiling,
clad in her August array.

And the magpie-
he just watches.

For he's not interested in August.

He's hungry.
