In Illowa In Summery December

In Illowa the sun it is shining on this beautiful December day
And the freshening breeze from the Pacific carries with it the sweet scent of hay
The dark swallows chirp in pursuit of flying insects in the blue sky with just a few clouds of gray
And above the sunlit flowers of the garden the white and brown butterflies play
The weather dry not too cool or too warm just over the twenty degrees
And the silver billed magpies are warbling their flute like notes on the high trees
In Illowa close to the ocean there is so much beauty to see
An artist could capture on canvas some of the natural beauty all around me
In Illowa in Summery December between Koroit and the City of Warrnambool
The weather is often near to perfect it is never too warm or too cool
The chirping of the brown house sparrows the familiar call of the pee wee
And the blackbirds they often are singing they have such a sweet melody
In the shade of the pines out of the sunshine the cattle chewing their cuds do lay
In Illowa in Summery December it is such a beautiful day.
