August

A Child's CalendarBy John Updike
A Child’s Calendar

The sprinkler twirls.
The summer wanes.
The pavement wears
Popsicle stains.

The playground grass
Is worn to dust.
The weary swings
Creak, creak with rust.

The trees are bored
With being green.
Some people leave
The local scene

And go to seaside
Bungalows
And take off nearly
All their clothes.

Chicken Soup with Rice: A Book of Months by Maurice Sendak

In August it will be so hot
I will become a cooking pot
Cooking soup of course-why not?
Cooking once, cooking twice
Cooking chicken soup with rice

June, too soon

June, too soon
July, standby
August, look out!
September, remember
October, all over!
