Charlie Brown

Posted Tuesday 25th August 2009 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
Charlie Brown the labrador puppy is as strong as an ox one might say
Whilst out walking when he see other dogs he pulls towards them wanting to play
A handful for Shane and for Lisa most puppies it would seem are that way
But with lots of good training and patience he will make a good dog one day.

A light fawn his brown eyes are so full of kindness he is such a beautiful boy
Though like most puppies he is mischievious and the things puppies do he enjoy...

A Beautiful Place

Posted Tuesday 25th August 2009 at 01:18 by Francis Duggan
The lorikeets chirp on the flowering gum trees it is such a beautiful day
And through the sunlit gardens the butterflies flit tiny dark spots on their wings of gray
The parklands and gardens lovely in their flowers and only a slight Summer breeze
The temperatures perfect for the time of year a tad over twenty degrees.

From this beautiful Country and beautiful place Utopia cannot be far away
For to view the beauty around us that is Nature's own money we...

Posted Tuesday 25th August 2009 at 01:14 by Francis Duggan
It used to be home for me Seasons ago how quickly the years seem to fly
And near two decades have passed since I last heard the lark above Clara hill in July
In Millstreet Town I'd feel a stranger today great changes have been happening there

Through old Claraghatlea the chilly winds blow less than a week from Christmas Day
The old fields at morning from the overnight freeze are...

The Urge To Write

Posted Tuesday 25th August 2009 at 01:08 by Francis Duggan
It is not for money not at all or literary renown
That these doggerels that are in my head in paper I put down
It is just the compulsion that I feel to write that keeps me keeping on
That keeps me penning worthless rhymes though all hope of fame has gone.

For many penning verse is a 'hungry belly game' just that and nothing more
And what we write about by others in other ways has often been said before
But the urge to write is irrestible a lust for...

8/23/09 - All Over The Saddle

I gave a tour of the Saddle on Sunday, mostly to visit rare or interesting plants and good habitats on Powerline Road and in the kipukas around Kaumana Trail. The weather was fog and rain all day long, yet somehow I still got a bad sunburn!

Since we were motoring around to get from place to place, and the weather was very wet, we paid little attention to birds. In the 1881 lava flow kipukas we didn't hear or encounter any of the endangered birds until we got to the lower end...
