Goodbye again, July

This post is a favorite from 2010. The crops were prettier than they are this year. It is good to remember.
Goodbye July
I hate to see you go.
I will miss your flowers,
and even your weeds.
I appreciate the wide open
 hope you brought to us,
and the wonder of your days.
You gave us time for fun,
For victories won,
and visits
with old friends.
Everything
 was looking up 
in July.
Like the prairie chicken on the road, you've run away
and become a shadow in our minds.
May you live in our hearts forever.

  1. I just found your blog through your daughter, Katie. I'm surprised I hadn't discovered it from searching for ag bloggers before!! I noticed I didn't see any tags on your post, so maybe that is why.
    You have some really incredible photos showcasing American agriculture. Tag the living daylights out of it!! I think you really have something beautiful here.
