The First Day Of Summer

When magpie was warbling in the moonlight
On silent wings Summer flew into the town at midnight
For her yearly three months mostly sunny stay
With the first of December dawned Summer's first day
And blackbird in the cool before sunrise did sing
His is a well known voice of the southern Spring
Time keeps ticking on as some do like to say
At midnight Spring to the Summer did quietly give way
And the year 2013 is drawing to a close
It will not even outlive the bloom of the rose
For the first of December a very warm day
And the warmest of Summer ahead of us lay
And with each passing day 2014 drawing near
When we welcome the new and farewell the old year.
