Old Joe

Old Joe he loves Nature and almost every day
He is watching birds in the park by the bay
Though in his late seventies his love for Nature does grow
And all of the region's birds by their songs or their calls he does know
At the weekend he enjoys a few beers at the neighborhood pub
And at their home games he barracks for the town's football club
Last year of cancer he lost the love of his life
His soul-mate of fifty years Kathy his beloved wife
With two daughters in their twenties Amanda and Joy
And Amanda has one son Tony a three years old boy
One who is well known and well loved in the town
In his prime with the local football club he earned his renown
But learning of Nature's ways is Joe's favorite thing
And he knows every bird by their call or the songs they do sing.
