In South Australia

In South Australia 'tis warm for most of the year
Though even to the sub tropics not anywhere near
A temperate climate it has we are told
Though there it never does get near to cold
Out bush in South Australia it is warm and dry
Where for weeks on end the sun burns in the sky
From sun and wind the paddocks looking brown and bare
With scarce enough of grass on them for to feed a hare
A flat and dry countryside far more brown than green
Where few trees and animals are to be seen
On all roads out of Adelaide many miles to the nearest town
Through flat open country bare looking and brown
Where in Summer the weather temperatures often reach forty degrees
With warmth in the sunshine and warmth in the breeze.
