Such A Warm Day For April - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is such a warm day for April 30 degrees or two or three more
The magpie larks sing in the parkland by the sunlit southern shore
The silver gulls wait by the picnic tables for scraps the picknickers to them do throw
And they squabble and squawk rather loudly as their greed and excitement does grow.

House sparrows the brown and gray chirpers are chirping on the small coastal trees
The weather for the time of year warm and humid the day does not have any breeze
On the roadway by the park by the ocean the traffic buzzes up and down
And the spotted neck doves cooings are echoing across the wide streets of the Town.

It is such a warm day for April in the midst of the Southern Fall
An old bloke i met in the parkland says the warmest that he can recall
And he has lived through eighty Autumns and he has seen many years come and go
He says the warmest and i do believe him as he is one who ought to know.

On the park paths the mums wheel the prams that hold their sleeping babies it does make for such a peaceful scene
And the park that's well watered by sprinklers one might say is looking quite green
And in the shallows of saltwater the children they splash, laugh and play
And in what does seem an Earthly Utopia it is such a beautiful day.
