A Beautiful Day - Poem by Francis Duggan

In the blue sky just a few specks of gray
In the evening of a beautiful day
Though last night it rained and more rain on the way
And that more rain is needed 'twould be fair to say
On a gum tree in the park the white backed magpie sing
He sings all year round from the Summer to Spring
But in late Winter and Spring he even sings at night
So nice to hear him piping in the moonlight
Spring it is with us and Summer is near
And beautiful weather for the time of year
Such beauty the poets and the artists inspire
Of talking of Nature could one ever tire
Her green of September Mother Nature wear
And the perfumes of blossoms in the evening air.

    The crocuses and tulips are breaking ground here. I hope nature doesn't surprise us with a polar surge.

    Dear Francis,
    your description of Nature is full of life. nice poem.

    'Swing of Spring'
    The soft swing of fresh air
    Has brought joyous glare
    Moist with drenching love
    Engaged in the idol affair
