On A February Day

A high of thirty one and scarcely any breeze
Today it is even warm in the shade of the trees
The sun shining bright in the blue February sky
And the dark welcome swallows twitter as they fly
In pursuit of flying insects above the park by the bay
How good to be living on such a nice day
On the clusters of fluffy pink blooms on the flowering gume trees
The buzzing of the nectar gathering bees
And the sweet scent of hay from the paddock nearby
For words to describe Nature's wonders without success i do try
Though every day she does have for me some new surprise
Of my ignorance of Nature's ways i have come to realize
Cabbage white butterflies dancing in the warm Summer breeze
On a pleasant temperature high of thirty one degrees.
