A January Day

It is warm today over thirty degrees
And warmth in the sunshine and warmth in the breeze
That blow across the bare dry paddocks from the nearby bay
In the clear blue sky just a few clouds of gray
For the past few months El Nino the thirsty one has been around
Sucking every drop of moisture out of the ground
The farmers are feeding their cattle on hay
They do hope for rain but rain seems far away
From the drought ravaged countryside that is looking so brown
For many kilometers on either side of the old country town
Every drain is bone dry and nothing seems to grow
And the creek to the river in a trickle does flow
And not a rain cloud in the clear sunny sky
Even for January the weather is so warm and dry.
