In Koroit Today

The low clouds of rain over Tower Hill are gray
It is raining in drizzles in Koroit today
The countryside by the old Town looks green overall
On the last week of April in the southern Fall
The Summer long over as Winter draws near
Yet the songs of the magpies are pleasant to hear
The beautiful warbling distinctive and clear
Of the birds who do sing every day of the year
Most of the shops closed in Koroit Town today
On Sundays in most rural towns it is often this way
Especially on a day that is gray with rain
Though after the recent spell of dry weather few with this could complain
And though rain drizzling down from low clouds of gray
The magpies are singing in Koroit today.
