A Beautiful March Day


A beautiful March day in Autumn the sun shining bright in the clear sky
The silver billed magpie is piping and white butterflies in the park fly
The magpie larks searching for slugs and insects from time to time call out pee wee
Familiar in their song and habits and birds that one often does see
Such a scene a poet would find inspiring and of such beauty a poem would write
A poem that would live for many decades and a reciter would feel glad to recite
Such beauty that is born of Nature with it there is none to compete
The birds they are chirping and singing on the trees in the park by the street
The Natural World fascinating such joy to me Nature does bring
The ways and workings of our Earth Mother is such a remarkable thing
Our Nature Goddess lives forever her life forms all have too die
The fate of the humble earth worm the same fate for you and for I
A beautiful March day in Autumn and everywhere breezy and bright
And white butterflies flying in the Parkland they make for a beautiful sight.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
