A Late April Day - Poem by Francis Duggan

A cool enough start to a late Autumn day
But the magpie does sing in the park by the bay
And the dainty black and white magpie larks are singing pee wee
Birds familiar to many and familiar to me
Overnight a weather temperature of a cool four degrees
And brown leaves are falling from the deciduous trees
Though not much warmth in the sunshine of late not much rain at all
And the weather quite Seasonal for mid to late Fall
Though the days getting cooler as Winter draws near
Autumn can be quite a nice time of year
And a few weeks ago the paddocks quite brown after a few hours of rain
Beginning to green and looking healthier again
The magpie is singing in the park by the bay
In a cool enough start to a late April day.
