A Nice Winter Day

Above the coastal paddocks on this sunny August day
A freshening breeze blowing up from Gormans Bay
For the Moyne Shire a pleasant Winter day of a weather temperature high of sixteen
And the countryside looking quite healthy and green
The songs of the blackbirds and magpies so pleasant to hear
On this beautiful day for the time of year
Twenty four nights and days till the first of the calendar Spring
And the nesting birds already whistle and sing
Under the blue sunny sky with just a few clouds of gray
The contented cattle chewing their cuds do lay
The countryside so green after recent rain
With such pleasant weather how can one complain
In August three weeks and three days from the calendar Spring
The nest building songbirds do whistle and sing.
