The First Day Of The Southern Summer - Poem by Francis Duggan

The first day of the Southern Summer in the Southern Hemisphere
The sun shines in the blue sky and a blackbird I do hear
His beautiful song so melodious and clear
On the first day of December the twelfth month of the year,
The temperatures pleasant twenty four degrees
With a welcome coolness in the evening breeze
That blows from the ocean a few miles away
One ought to feel happy for such a nice day
The Spring of the year 2009 to the forever gone
And Summer has arrived and life around us goes on
The birth of another Summer I have survived to see
Though the passing of the Seasons now telling on me
The blackbirds and the white backed magpies on song
And the sparrows on the hedgerow with them chirp along.
