Quote of the Day


Poetry Friday: Elsa Beskow


The sun is hot,
for July is here,
haymaking time
in the fields.
Now is the time
when cabbages grow,
the spinach
and cress,

the lettuce and onions
and leeks.

Now is the time
when each day
I go to the pump
with my
and water and water
the rows.
The poppies glow red,

tiger-lilies gold,
the grasses
are tall and straight.

But July is here
THUNDER in the air.

~Elsa Beskow
