A Nice Day In July

Though not a mosquito or bee or wasp or fly in sight
The Magpies are piping in the Winter sunlight
A beautiful day for the time of the year
And with each passing day Spring is drawing ever near
This morning the paddock with frost hoary gray
But since the sun shone out just before mid day
Some warmth has come to the air and the paddocks look green
And the lamp of the sun it has brightened the scene,
A beautiful day for the third week of July
And not a rain cloud in the blue southern sky
The early nesting birds gathering nesting material in the sunlight of day
They know that the Spring is not that far away
And birds by their chirping that everyone know
The sparrows can be heard on garden hedgerow.
