April In Yangery

In Yangery today it is eighteen degrees
With a cool freshness in the coastal breeze
Blowing above the paddocks across the gray sky
The weather forecast for the day is cloudy and dry
The weather for the time of year quite dry overall
On the second week of April in the southern Fall
The tiny frogs singing in every pond and drain
And the countryside looking greener after recent rain
Seemingly quite happy sheltering from the breeze
The contented cattle chewing their cuds lay by the tall cypress trees
On a nice enough day though the sun is not out
Such beauty an artist could sketch or a writer write about
Though the weather forecast does have some rain on the way
In Yangery it is a nice April day.
