Kirkstall In May

As healthy and lush as they ever have been
The paddocks of Kirkstall today looking green
In the late southern Autumn Winter nearing with each passing day
The weather quite cool and wet even for May
A forecast high for the day of sixteen degrees
With just a few showers and only a slight breeze
Yet with this sort of weather you won't hear farmers complain
Since after a warm and dry Summer the countryside does need rain
The Summer has gone and with her took her wildflowers
But Kirkstall looks lush and green in the late Autumn showers
The sheep putting on weight in grass to their knees
And few leaves yet brown on the deciduous trees
And the calendar Winter is not far away
Near the end of the Autumn in Kirkstall in May.
