August and ‘Sandy glory’

Adding a face to her sand-angel - in all her 'sandy glory'

Adding a face to her sand angel – in all her ‘sandy glory’

What a gloriously evocative poem this is!

August (from ‘The Months’) – Linda Pastan

Barefoot
and sun-dazed,
I bite into this ripe peach
of a month,

gathering

children
into my arms
in all their
sandy
glory,

heaping
my table each night
with nothing
but corn and tomatoes.
