Portland On A Wet Day

In the freshening coastal winds the rain drizzling down
On the streets and the sidewalks of old Portland Town
From the shopping center the inclement weather keeps the shoppers away
On the last day of September a rare gloomy day
In Portland at most times the weather is fine
With nice coastal breezes and plenty sunshine
Spring 2013 thus far has been wet this year
Though warm days of Summer with each day draw near
The songster of all Seasons who sings every day
The magpie is warbling in the park by the bay
And the mud nest building magpie larks do sing out pee wee
Their song familiar to many and familiar to me
And the holiday makers in the cafes enjoying their cake and tea
Looking out on the rain in the Town by the sea.
