By The Sea At Killarney

Mid April in Victoria the weather damp and cool
By the sea at killarney 15 k's from Warrnambool
The beach it is deserted not another human being in sight
And a pale looking sun is setting in the fading evening light
It has been said a pale sunset does give promise of rain
And like last night was tonight may be windy with heavy showers again
The pied oyster-catchers piping as above the waves they fly
Unlike silver gulls these shore birds of humans do seem shy
Quite pretty birds to look at with a nice piping song
To the quiet coastal beaches their sort of bird belong
In the twilight of the evening the pacific black back gulls do call
In Killarney by the ocean on an April evening in the Fall
Out at sea the huge waves of the Pacific spouting a white foamy spray
In Killarney in Victoria in the twilight of the day.
