We Thank Mother Nature

Posted Tuesday 21st July 2009 at 03:38 by Francis Duggan
The sounds of the Carnival all around me
From the old market stalls in the park by the sea
The sea birds are circling the sunlit wooded hill
And the ocean looks calm and the waves all but still.

'Tis nice to be out in the fresh coastal air
A temporary relief from the stress of life's care
Though the voices of the stall holders and the music of the Carnival I hear
On the wooded hillside it is quite peaceful here.

The Song Of The Curlew

Posted Tuesday 21st July 2009 at 03:33 by Francis Duggan
Above the brown bogland he pipes as he fly
The song of the curlew in the morning sky
Once heard unmistakeable so flute like and clear
In that old green Country many miles north of here.

The song of the curlew a beautiful thing
A familiar voice of the Northern Spring
It echoes so sweetly in the still morning air
Of his breeding borders he makes his own kind aware.

His wife lay her eggs by bog hole on damp ground
In a place...

The Man From Caherbarnagh

Posted Monday 20th July 2009 at 03:43 by Francis Duggan
The man from Caherbarnagh is showing his years in gray
He was raised by those mountains far north and far away
Above the old fields by the bog the swallows chirp and fly
And the lark is carolling in the clouds a small speck in the sky.

The man from Caherbarnagh has seen more than five decades of life
He is a Naturalized Aussie and he has an Aussie wife
His children and their children are Aussies with his family he will stay
Far south of Caherbarnagh...

Memory Of The Robin's Nest

Posted Monday 20th July 2009 at 03:38 by Francis Duggan
Mental pictures of things of Nature through life one recall
I once found a bird's nest in ivy growing on stone wall
The nest of a robin and his faithful wife
A memory to carry and to cherish for life.

A cup shaped nest of moss, stalks and leaves and lined with animal hair
A thing of great beauty built with painstaking care
I counted five tiny white eggs covered in spots of red
The nest owners chirped on a branch o'er my head.

I Feel Lucky To Live In This Country

Posted Monday 20th July 2009 at 03:34 by Francis Duggan
We did have some showers in the morning though it was quite welcome the rain
And the day it has turned out quite windy and the sun is out shining again
For mid Fall it is such good weather the butterflies dance in the breeze
And the temperatures so very pleasant a tad over twenty degrees.

I have every cause to feel happy on this rather beautiful day
The butcherbird the familiar fellow in his cloak of dark brown and gray
His bubbling notes he is piping...
