A Nice Day In October

The sun feels pleasantly warm on this nice October day
And the magpies are warbling in the park by the bay
And the golden bill blackbird on a wattle does sing
For to proclaim his borders in the prime of the Spring
The weather temperature a near perfect twenty one degrees
With only a very timid coastal breeze
The balmy air full of the buzzing of bees
And the contented cattle at rest chewing their cuds in the shade of the trees
The Spring such a beautiful time of the year
The pee wee call of the magpie lark pleasant to hear
Nature's wonders are many and her secrets not few
And every day of her we learn something new
A nice day in October and Spring in her prime
And Nature again has inspired me to rhyme.
