        AUGUST SONG

My love

many things
could have happened in August
but will not happen

many fireflies
could have shone in your eyes
but will not shine

and the month of August will be buried
without pomp or circumstance
without flowers or processions

like so many days
that never got to be trees

like so many trees
that never got to be birds

like so many birds
that never got to fly
