September

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

a limerick

"

One of the calendar’s members

Said, “Hey, it’s my turn now, remember?”

Of course, she was right

So August took flight

And now we must welcome September

Sooo charmingly cute, Rita! 😃

The fanciful imagery of a calendar's pages talking to one another bade me smile with joy!
You've taken a very creative way of saying, "So long!" to one month and, "Hello!" to the next.
I love it, but on a technical level, every line beginning ungrammatically with a cap makes it visually heavy for me, and incomplete punctuation lends an unfinished feel … try a size smaller font, as it seems to be "SHOUTING!"

One of the calendar’s members
said, “Hey, it’s my turn now, remember?”
Of course, she was right;
so, August took flight,
and now we must welcome September!

Thanks again for such a happy little treat from your skillful pen … love the mono-rhymes, too! ⁓ Richard : )

(I see this is one of your earlier posts, too)

Nicely done as always Rita. Seasons are different here in Oz and yes goodbye to cold August we welcome September as we hit Spring leading to summer.

Nice to read you again and I hope you are well.

Ah, the bittersweet September. As a kid I would always look forward to my September birthday, but be sad to see summer end and school begin. Now, as a teacher, I still have a little sadness for the end of summer, and a lot of excitement for a new beginning. (As I get older, the birthday part, I tend to want to forget. :)

I love September. If I could choose a lover and she must be a month of the year, it would be September... for many reasons... Oh well, I had to go there. ha.
Thank you for welcoming this perfect month!

Down here in America's wang August is the hottest month of the stinking summer and I for one am glad to see it go.
