For The Time Of The Year

The Finnow river bank high in flood waters of brown
Is flowing in the flat fields west of Millstreet Town
To join with the Cails and into a bigger river grow
And on to Drishane to the Blackwater flow
Brown storm water gurgling in the roadside drain
Though the sun out and shining after heavy thunder rain
In mid June to the prime of the Summer quite near
The weather is quite wet for the time of the year
In this the twenty first century in a time of Climate Change
The weather Worldwide it is acting quite strange
The big rivers in flood flowing to the Atlantic Shore
In Ireland a Land of heavy rainfall more rain than ever before
Where the shy male pheasant amongst the rank rushes does crow
Above old Duhallow the winds of rain blow.
