Warrnambool On A Wet And Windy Day - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is windy and raining and on the side of cool
Today in the old City of Warrnambool
The weather temperatures at a blustery fourteen degrees
And the wild gales are howling in the Norfolk pine trees
Though the gales in a few hours will blow themselves tame
Breezy Warrnambool today lives up to it's name
For anyone not a good out of doors day at all
Nobody walking on the Warrnambool breakwater wall
How loudly the mighty Pacific does roar
The storm driven huge white waves crash on to the shore
It is not wise for one to be out walking today
Even for Warrnambool so wet and stormy for May
A weather forecast high for the day of fourteen degrees
And the gales they are howling in the Norfolk pine trees.
