Late August The Spring Less Than Two Weeks Away

Late August the Spring less than two weeks away
Weatherwise so far it has been a changeable day
This morning 'twas raining but now there's sunshine
The rest of the day may be pleasant and fine
The flutings of the magpies carrying in the breeze
And songbirds chirp and sing on bushes and trees
The birds know the Spring to the South is drawing near
And they become territorial at this time of year
Their aggression heightened by their sexual drive
In Nature the strongest and fittest survive
'Tis not out of joy at the coming of Spring
But to defend his borders that the male songbird sing
This morning at dawn the birds sang in the rain
But the sun in the blue sky is now shining again.
