On A Very Warm Day Of Forty Two Degrees

Today is so warm 42 degrees
It is not even cool in the shade of the trees
The warm air full of the buzzing of flies, wasps and bees
And great warmth in the sunshine and warmth in the breeze
In such weather fire danger a thing to fear
A very warm beginning to the new year
The town it is quiet most people indoors today
In air conditioned lounge room on the couch they do lay
Whilst others have found their own way of keeping cool
Relaxing in the water of the town swimming pool
Woolly gray clouds in the blue summer sky
Where chasing flying insects the dark swallows fly
And around the blossoming trees white butterflies play
On the second of January in the year 2012 on a very warm day.
