For many years i have been a rhyming buff
And i am one of those who has penned heaps of stuff
Easy to write and read with the rhythm of rhyme
That literary critics dismiss as of another time

In Nature heaps of material to write rhymes about
Like the pink spots on the skin of the wild born trout
That in the summer sunshine laze in the shallows of the river pool
Nature's garden is such a great out of doors school

Any dreams of success i have had in me are long dead
But the seeds of rhyme do keep on growing in my head
And though my best years in life in the forever gone
True to my calling i keep on rhyming on

For the first day of December and Summer such a beautiful day
In the sunny blue sky just a few clouds of gray
The parkland looking green after recent rain
With such pleasant weather how can one complain

On such a nice day so good to be alive
To go for a walk or on a country car drive
The song of the blackbird melodious and clear
It is such a beautiful time of the year.
