Seems A Long Way From Here

Posted Sunday 16th August 2009 at 02:54 by Francis Duggan
In the calm of the late evening the mosquitoes bite
And the restless moths they are constantly in flight
As they circle and circle the orange street light
Seems a long way from here to Duhallow tonight.

Though my words will never stand the test of time
Nostalgia too can be expressed in bad rhyme
Since I live far away from where Finnow flows down
Through the fields and by hedgerows near old Millstreet Town.

My life's journey...

The Mynas Of Glen Iris

Posted Sunday 16th August 2009 at 02:49 by Francis Duggan
The constant noise of the traffic on the busy freeway
But in the parks of Glen Iris on this pleasant Spring day
The mynas are singing on the bushes and trees
Their voices are carrying in the freshening morning breeze.

Their ancestors brought to here from places far away
From their old homes in India of Delhi and Bombay
They call them an introduced species but it would be fair to say
That the Melbourne born myna is an Aussie of today.

When The Bluebells Bloom

Posted Sunday 16th August 2009 at 02:46 by Francis Duggan
There is so much beauty in Nature but as lovely a thing as I've seen
Is in May when the bluebells are blooming on the ditch along the old bohreen
The wild hyacinths of Mother Nature so lovely and bell like and blue
When the bohreen is lit by bright sunlight they sparkle in the morning dew.

Of the beautiful bluebells of Nature the memory with me remain
On the damp and shady ditch of the bohreem they bloom in the wind and the rain
Surrounded by Nature's...

Pee Wee

Posted Sunday 16th August 2009 at 02:41 by Francis Duggan
How can one ever mistake him the bird singing in the park
Pee wee pee wee is all he sing the dainty magpie lark
A black and white feathered character his is a familiar song
Pee wee pee wee the notes he sing you cannot get him wrong.

Some people call him mudlark for one reason that he
And his partner build cup shaped nest of mud on fork or branch of tree
And others call him pee wee because of the song he sing
All through the year from dawn...

The Countryman

Posted Saturday 15th August 2009 at 03:00 by Francis Duggan
The Countryman may go to live in the City but the Countryside in him remain
And often in his flights of fancy he hears the frogs sing in the drain
And he hears the boobook owl calling as he hunt on the moonlit gum trees
That voice once to him so familiar comes to him in the freshening breeze.

The Countryman lives in the City for one reason much higher pay
He has to support a wife and raise a young family in his rural Town he could not afford to stay...
