I have a fun summer poem for you all this month - I just loved the beautiful descriptions of summer - I'm not usually much of a poem person - but I love this one! I hope you enjoy it too!

"O Spirit of the Summertime!
Bring back the roses to the dells;
The swallow from her distant clime,
The honey-bee from drowsy cells.

Bring back the friendship of the sun;
The gilded evenings, calm and late,
When merry children homeward run,
And peeping stars bid lovers wait.

Bring back the singing; and the scent
Of meadowlands at dewy prime;
Oh, bring again my heart's content,
Thou Spirit of the Summertime!"
- William Allingham

I made some word art for you again - this will be free for the month of August only. Can't wait to see your layouts!

Remember - you can use any portion of this poem that you wish - you don't need to use all of it if you don't want to - also - the word art is just a fun little freebie - you don't have to use it either. :)
