The Sun In The Gray Clouds - Poem by Francis Duggan

The sun in the gray clouds is hidden away
And the dark welcome swallows are flying low today
It has rained heavily this morning and more rain seems near
The Southern March as weather goes a changeable time of year
Last night from my bed i could hear the frogs sing
Their songs of change in the weather to me it did bring
From listening to Nature insights we do gain
The tiny amphibians always sing before and during rain
The day sunless and cool with a freshening cool breeze
And the dark currawongs singing on the tall trees
They are Nature's forecasters of rain, sleet or snow
Of pending change in the weather some birds seem to know
The gray clouds of rain are in the evening sky
And low above the ground the welcome swallows fly.
