I Have Been

I have been lucky in life of this i can say
In the beauty around me i see every day
The great beauty in Nature one does not pay to see
It is all around you and it is all around me
This a pleasant enough day of around eighteen degrees
Of intermittent sunshine with a gentle Spring breeze
Blowing across the paddocks from the saltwater bay
No reason to complain on a day like today
The song of the blackbird a voice of the Spring
To listen to is such a beautiful thing
And the warbling of the magpies a joy for to hear
The birds who do sing every day of the year
And the lush and green paddocks after recent showers
Are looking resplendent in their Nature's flowers.
