In June In the Moyne Shire

In June in the Moyne Shire in the cool Winter showers
The wattle trees cloaked in their bright yellow flowers
In weather temperatures that seldom go over fifteen degrees
And never any warmth in the often strong breeze
That blow from the ocean across the green countryside
With the return of the white cattle egrets the birds that travel far and wide
They will fly north to their breeding grounds in the Spring
When in the sub tropics the pied butcher-birds whistle and sing
In June in the Moyne Shire a green time of year
The weather often unsettled and the sky seldom clear
But the cattle on nutritious young grass gaining weight by the day
Six weeks ago the farmers were feeding them hay
The Moyne Shire looking healthy and green after the recent rain
And with the cool showery weather none ought to complain.
