It’s Springtime now Down Under
While we here are right in the Fall
Hard to believe it’s the same Earth
It barely makes sense at all.
I wonder how folks in the old days
Reacted to this bit of news
That Christmas could be in the summer
Did they think it was some kind of ruse?
Oh – look what I wrote up above there!
A captive of my point of view
Though for folks in the lands Down Under
This cannot be anything new.
So let’s start this poem all over
Let’s turn it upside on its head
And now, it is Fall Over Yonder
But here it’s the time to plant beds.
