On Hearing A Magpie At Dawn - Poem by Francis Duggan

March in the Southern Fall seems a long way from the Spring
But this morning at dawn i heard the magpie sing
His kind are known to sing all through the year
And their flute like notes always pleasant to hear
Their music once heard you can never get wrong
In rain, wind and sunshine they burst into song
Whilst some birds only sing in the thunder and rain
The wonders of Nature are hard to explain
But the magpies of Australia sing all the year round
And they sing on the trees and they sing on the ground
And this morning i heard one pipe his fanfare to the day
On a tall gum tree in the dawn calm and gray
