A Sunny And Beautiful March Evening

A sunny and beautiful March evening just over twenty degrees
And in the old town by the ocean a refreshing and cool coastal breeze
Is blowing up the street from saltwater it is such a beautiful day
Not too warm or too cool near to perfect or so it does seem to me anyway
The magpie larks sing in the parkland their familiar song of pee wee
I've heard and seen them in places far inland and I've heard and seen them in parks by the sea
I do love this mild Autumn weather a day like today suits me fine
Not too warm or too cool close to perfect with a freshening breeze and sunshine
On the main streets the noise of the traffic the cars and trucks pass up and down
And many people shopping and doing business in the big and busy coastal town
But in the Townpark by the ocean the song of the magpie you hear
And the chirping lorikeets searching for nectar where the pee wees voice rings loud and clear
The silver gulls call by saltwater and a freshening and cool Autumn breeze
Is blowing up the street from the ocean and soughing in the norfolk pine trees.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
