A Warm March Day In Illowa

In the mostly blue sky just a few clouds of gray
It is warm and sunny in Illowa today
Quite warm for March in the far southern Fall
It does not feel that much like Autumn at all
The song of the magpies so pleasant to hear
The birds who do sing every day of the year
From mid Winter to late Spring they often sing at night
How nice to hear them warbling in the moonlight
A warm Autumn day in Illowa close to thirty degrees
And white butterflies dancing in the timid breeze
Attracted to the yellow flowers of the mustard weed
With so little time for to mate and to breed
The black and white cattle in the shade of the trees chewing their cuds lay
In Illowa in the afternoon of a March day.
