As Lucky As Can Be

For all of us there is a final day
And for me that cannot be too far away
Since i have seen many Seasons come and go
And time it has become my greatest foe
So good to be alive on this the first day of the southern calendar Spring
The great gift of life is such a marvelous thing
The green Goddess of Spring did creep in overnight
To silver bill magpie's fanfare in the pale moonlight
The first of September quite a pleasant day
The sun shines in the clouds of blue and gray
The blackbird's song so pleasant for to hear
It is indeed a lovely time of year
I do feel lucky as lucky as can be
That another Spring i have survived to see.
