August

She'll come at dusky first of day
White over yellow harvest's song
Upon her dewy rainbow way
She shall be beautiful and strong
The lidless eye of noon shall spray
Tan on her ankles in the hay
Shall kiss her brown the whole day long

I'll know her in the windows tall
Above the crickets of the hay
I'll know her when her odd eyes fall
One May-blue, one November-gray
I'll watch her down the red barn wall
Take down her rusty scythe and call
And I will follow her away
I will follow her away

~by Francis Ledwidge


I have this poem set to music by the Irish choir Anúna, (the original singers in Riverdance) and I find it, especially the last line, very haunting.

This took forever. Partly because I got close to defenestration of my laptop part way through, and I took a break for sanity purposes.

Lighting can be the hardest part of setting up a scene and it can make or break the image. I thnk you did a great job.
