In January - Poem by Francis Duggan

From the ocean walkway the surf waves one does hear
Crashing on the beach that in distance is near
To the shady walkway flanked by coastal trees
On a pleasant enough January evening over twenty degrees
In the mostly blue sky just a few clouds of gray
For Warrnambool a typical January day
In the prime of the Summer by the southern sea
On a nice sunny evening such a nice place to be
A cool freshening breeze blowing from Stingray Bay
Earthly Utopia from Warrnambool is never far away
A poet of such beauty a great poem would write
For lovers of poetry to read and recite
The sound of the surf waves on the sandy shore
For to enjoy such beauty i could return for more.
