The Weather Humid And Warm

The weather humid and warm over forty degrees
With a sweaty warmth in the freshening breeze
Blowing above the brown paddocks from the sunlit bay
The sun is glowing hot in the blue sky today
Crawling on your hands, legs and face and around your eyes
They buzz all around you the tiny bush flies
Born on cattle excrement in Summer in billions they multiply
Plagues of them buzzing in the sunny sky
In the headland of the paddocks out of the sun and breeze
The cattle crowded together in the shade of the trees
In the park children playground not one mother or child in sight
Far too warm today to be in the sunlight
On this very warm day in December of over forty degrees
A humid warmth in the sunshine and the coastal breeze.
