The Australian Winter

It’s winter time in Oz
A glorious season where beauty flowers
And birds flap their wings with glee.

The wrens are hard to find
But there’s an orgy of flowering gum trees
In the graceful landscape we love.

The eucalyptus in bloom
Red, yellow, orange, purple, and white flowers
The ascent of the rainbow nation.

Behold the season of plenty
A legion of frisky parrots in feeding frenzy;
While the homeless begs for mercy.
