On The Last Time I Saw Old Ballydaly

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:46 by Francis Duggan
On the last time I saw old Ballydaly the weather it was cold enough to snow
And the river from Kippagh along by Feirm bank high on down towards Annagloor did flow
It was an overcast November morning and on a naked birch a lone gray crow
Was cawing his voice echoed in the silence of an empty landscape all of those years ago.

Many Seasons since have come to Ballydaly and many Seasons gone the way of time
The young children back then are now in their twenties...

In Mt Eccles

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:38 by Francis Duggan
In Mt Eccles surrounded by wooded volcanic cliffs is green old Lake Surprise
That echo to the wood duck calls and the dusky moorhen cries
Along the cliffs above the lake gray gum and blackwood grow
From the look out deck the view is breath taking Nature's beauty is on show.

On the gum trees beyond the cliffs one hears the pied currawong
Crimson rosellas pipe and ravens caw and the
magpies are in song
And the laughter of the kookaburras is...

The Rain Has Fallen Steadily

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 02:52 by Francis Duggan
The rain has fallen steadily through the morning to swell the creek and fill the roadside drain
And on the blackwood tree the white backed magpie is singing his kind always sings in wind and rain
This dry countryside needs rain as much as we need to drink water but the difference between Mother Earth and you and I
Is that after rain the earth again starts living but we are dead forever when we die,
How nice to hear the rain on the galvanize roof it does make for a pleasant...

On Lake Hamilton

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 02:48 by Francis Duggan
On Lake Hamilton lengthwise from shore to shore
On a kilometre of water counted two hundred swans or more
In early May in the Fall of the year
Perhaps to moult the reason they are here?

Big dark brown birds to mateship they are true
On Hamilton lake so beautiful to view
Musk and black duck, coot, moorhen and a pelican the lake with them share
On Lake Hamilton water birds are never rare.

A haven for the wild and for the free...
