A December Day In The Moyne Shire

White butterflies flitting above the flower beds and around the bushes and trees
On a warm evening in December of over thirty degrees
The warm air is full of the buzzing of flies and of bees
And the song of a blackbird is carrying in the freshening breeze
The distinctive warbling of the magpies who sing every day of the year
Australia's supreme black and white feathered minstrels their fluting a joy for to hear
In Summer in the coastal Moyne Shire the weather can change from day to day
The evening breeze has a certain coolness blowing uphill from the Pacific bay
The cattle out of the warm sunshine chewing their cuds in the shade of the trees
Tomorrow supposed to be cooler and more pleasant in the lower twenty degrees
January can be warmer though the Christmas weather can often be cool
A livable part of the World to live in the coastal countryside near Warrnambool
A warm day in December in the coastal Moyne Shire the weather temperature at thirty or more
Though the breeze has a certain coolness blowing uphill from the Pacific shore.
