On Magpies Singing At Night

How lovely to hear magpies singing at night
At the start of their nesting Season in the moonlight
When the stars are twinkling in the cold sky
In the depths of Winter in chilly July
The warbling notes such a joy for to hear
Of the birds who do sing at all times of the year
When in the still of the night you hear the magpies sing
You know that it cannot be too far from Spring
The black and white songsters of the Southern Hemisphere
To the wettest and coldest of Winter they help to bring cheer
From once heard their flute like notes one never again gets wrong
Australian magpies they do have a beautiful song
How lovely to hear them on a calm July night
Singing on the gum trees in the Winter moonlight.
