Illowa In Late May

The sun out and shining a beautiful sight
On the green paddocks of Illowa in the sunlight
In changeable weather with a freshening breeze
On a cool sort of a day around sixteen degrees
A magpie is warbling on a sunlit gum tree
And the magpie larks sing their familiar pee wee
The start of the calendar Winter just one sleep away
And the deciduous trees are losing their brown leaves of May
An hour ago the gray sky was drizzling rain
But nice to see the sun out and shining again
With May almost ended and June and Winter quite near
The weather can change quickly at this time of year
The countryside looking healthier than it has been for awhile
And the recent rain to the farmer's face has brought a smile.
