All Around Me

A freshening coastal breeze blowing uphill from the bay
Carries with it the pleasant natural aroma of grass mowed for hay
Under the blue and gray clouds of a mid November sky
The swallows with the sun on their dark wings chase insects as they fly
The wildflowers of Nature are all around me
And a blackbird is singing on a black-wood tree
Of the birds who do sing every day of the year
The flutes of the magpies a joy for to hear
On nutritious young grass gaining weight by the day
The contented cattle chewing their cuds do lay
In Nature so much beauty for to admire
And of singing her praises could one ever tire
The dainty black and white magpie larks are singing pee wee
And beauty is everywhere all around me.
