I Thank Mother Nature - Poem by Francis Duggan

I thank Mother Nature for this lovely day
The silver billed magpie in feathers of dark and gray
Is piping his tune so melodious and clear
He can be heard sing every day of the year
A beautiful day in the last week of the Fall
The black and white willy wagtail on the garden wall
He wags his long tail as he watches for flies
And little escapes his dark predator eyes
The calendar Winter just six days away
A beautiful day for the last week of May
A beautiful day of sunshine and breeze
And the wattlebirds call on the banksia trees
The cattle sitting in the sunshine chew their cud at their ease
On this beautiful day close to twenty degrees.
