A Day In December

In the morning a few hours of quite heavy rain
And brown flood water flowing in every creek and drain
To the Merri River near the City of Warrnambool
In weather quite warm and humid as opposed to cool
The afternoon windy and warm and humid and bright
And white butterflies are dancing in the sunlight
The gusty wind carries the sweet scent of grass mowed for hay
Blowing across the brown paddocks from the saltwater bay
My true worth as a rhymer i have good reason for to doubt
But in Nature no shortage of anything for to write rhymes about
Birds familiar to many and familiar to me
The black and white magpie larks are singing pee wee
White butterflies are dancing in the strong evening breeze
On a December afternoon humid and warm close to thirty degrees.
