On This Warm Summer Evening

On this warm Summer's evening beauty all around me
A magpie is warbling on a sunlit gum tree
A forecast high for the day of twenty four degrees
And the air full of the buzzing of bush flies and bees
The cattle sheltering from the sun and the breeze
Lay chewing their cuds in the shade of the trees
Of such natural beauty a poet would write
For lovers of Nature to enjoy and read and recite
The sweet scent of grass recently mowed for hay
Is wafting in the breeze from the ocean bay
And the paddocks lush, healthy looking and green after the recent December rain
With such beautiful weather how can one complain
And everywhere i turn to look i do see
The natural beauty that is everywhere around me.
