You can tell that winter's coming to an end
you can smell the pungent flowers in the air again.
You can see her blue petals everywhere you go
putting on the most amazing show.
Of what a sunny welcome to the spring
it makes you feel so joyous that you want to sing.
Smell that heady perfume in the air
it makes you feel so free you don’t even care.
In and out of the butterfly bush
the bees are buzzing and hiding in a perfumed bush.
Then back to their hive near the old gum tree
what an awesome sight to see.
The loud lorikeets are full of glee
happily drinking the nectar from the red drunken tree.
I cannot help but stop and look in awe
I feel so much joy even though I know I’m poor.
