The earth is all a glow

The Earth is all a glow

It’s such a perfect day to day
This morning all the sky
Is painted in the darkest grey
As Cockatoos fly by
The rain begins to fall real hard
Making drum beats on my window
As sun does try to show his face
And the earth is all a glow.

And then like magic, clouds disperse
And the morn is soft and still
And all the Earth it is immersed
[Oh, how it makes me thrill]
With the suns sweet lovely tenderness
Oh what a lovely show
I love it when the sun beams down
And the earth is all a glow

Honeyeater sings his song
From a lovely Banksia tree
Some doves here in a little throng
They coo so tenderly
Green parrots perch upon a fence
And give off quite a show
I love it when the sun shines bright
And the earth is all a glow

I’m out here on the porch alone
To watch this lovely show
I sit in silence like a stone
And the earth is all a glow
