saturday shopping list - august 14th

"o spirit of the summer-time!
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 weary children homeward run,
and peeping stars bid lovers wait.

bring back the singing; and the scent
of meadow-lands at dewy prime;
oh, bring again my heart's content,
thou spirit of the summer-time!"

~  'song. o spirit of the summer-time!', by william allingham

the first break in the summer heat, here in georgia today, brings with it the stirrings of change in the air.  that very essence which pulls from within the desire for cozy cardigans, and cinnamon scented air, and softer light... all while trying to hold on to fresh summer produce, and refreshing swims, and breezy summer dresses.  i suppose this is the very nature of august.
