On hearing A Magpie

Posted Saturday 12th September 2009 at 01:57 by Francis Duggan
Though it is now near the mid Autumn
And many long weeks from the Spring

It is such a pleasant thing to hear.

The black and white Australian magpie
Surely a feathered Prince of song
Once heard he cannot be mistaken...

Black swans in the night sky how sweetly they sing

Their voices in the moonlight so lovely to hear
As they sing to each other that's how 'twould appear.

The song of the black swans one cannot mistake...

The Captive Hare

Posted Saturday 12th September 2009 at 01:33 by Francis Duggan
He had that look the frightened look of fear
I could swear his wild brown eyes were full of tears
He had that mournful look about the eye
Like human soul who'd been condemned to die.

Last night the caged in prisoner lived free
And ate sweet grasses in an upland lea
Last night the wild born brown hare ate his fill
In the green meadow by the heather hill.

Last night october wind soughed in the trees
And he was free and...
