A Warm Day In February

The day it is warm thirty five degrees
And a humid warmth in the southerly breeze
That blow from the sea through the park by the bay
Even for late February a very warm day

For weeks El Nino the thirsty one has been around
Sucking every drop of moisture out of the dry ground
Many farmers are feeding their cattle on silage and hay
That no grass grows on bare dry ground does seem true to say

The warm air full of the buzzing of bush flies and bees
And the sheep crowd for shelter from the sun in the shade of the tall trees
Though white butterflies flitting in the warm sunlight
Do make for what is a beautiful sight

The water dams low and bone dry every drain
The bare, brown and dry countryside is in need of lots of rain
With the sun on their wings in the blue and gray sky
The dark welcome swallows in pursuit of flying insects do fly.
