A Very Warm Day

In the blue January sky not a cloud of gray
On this very warm and bright summer's day
In temperatures well over thirty degrees
The white and the brown butterflies dance around the bushes and trees
The bird who does sing every day of the year
The flute of the magpie quite pleasant to hear
And birds active till late twilight from first rays of daybreak
The songs of the starlings one cannot mistake,
Though some say their gardens are in need of rain
Of this dry sunny weather one ought not to complain
When in Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales the rain is bucketing down
And the overflowing rivers flood many a town
I think i would prefer it here where it is warm and dry
And not a rain cloud in the blue and sunny sky.
