It Is Cold And Wet Today

It is cold and wet today where the waterways meet
In the green countryside by the Town of Millstreet
The Boggeragh Ranges cloaked in the fogs of rain
And brown storm water flowing in every field drain

With only a day to the calendar Spring
Deciduous trees bare and birds do not sing
It rained overnight and it will rain today
And cattle in the farmyard sheds bellowing for silage or hay

It has been a long Winter weather-wise bad over all
With so many big floods since the mid Fall
But it is not that long until the prime of the Spring
When the wild nesting birds will have their songs to sing

And there will be new leaves on the deciduous trees
And the weather temperature will be close to twenty degrees
And in the fields contented cattle chewing their cuds do lay
On nutritious young grass gaining weight by the day

And the hawthorns will look resplendent in their blossoms of white to gray
They do look their finest from late April to late May
And the old fields at their greenest from the mild Spring showers
A sight of Natural beauty in their Nature's flowers.
