A December Day Near Warrnambool

The weather gusty and cool behind clouds of gray
The sun has been hiding for most of the day
But for December it is pleasantly cool
In the coastal countryside of the Moyne Shire close to Warrnambool
The twittering songs of the goldfinches pleasant to hear
Their nesting time in late Spring till mid Summer every year
And in voices familiar and melodious and clear
The songs of the blackbirds always pleasant to hear
The pleasant aroma of grass mowed for hay
Is wafting in the breeze of a December day
And the flute like notes of the magpies one could never get wrong
The black and white raven sized minstrels of song
And the magpie larks sing their familiar pee wee
Where the beauty of Nature is all around me.
