The Rain Has Fallen Steadily

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 03:52 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 03:48 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...

Oh Take Me To The Woods And Open Spaces

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 03:45 by Francis Duggan
Oh take me to the woods and open spaces in fancy I feel distant from the town
Upon the wooded hill amongst the bracken that overlook the landscape green to brown
That seem to stretch on miles into the distance much further even than the eyes can see
You like the shopping centres of suburbia the kind of life you like is not for me.

In Nature's kingdom all is quiet and peaceful and Nature's voice is seldom ever loud
Except when a big storm it is raging and...

Bullfinches

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 03:40 by Francis Duggan
The bullfinches I remember from my younger years so nice to look at favourite birds of mine
The male much brighter coloured than the female so lovely looking lit by the sun-shine
With dark head, blue back and beautiful pink breast of Europe's finches the fairest of all
For beauty only rivalled by the goldfinches though differences in their habits I recall,
The bullfinches are not liked by orchardists they eat the fruit tree blossoms in the Spring
They build their...

Each Day Things Of Beauty

Posted Wednesday 16th September 2009 at 02:52 by Francis Duggan
Each day things of beauty I'm privileged to see
The beauty of Nature is all around me
The gray butcherbird pipes on the wattle tree
His song is embedded in my memory.

Beauty is around me whereever I go
Though of Nature's ways very little I know
Embedded in my memory many a beautiful sight
Like butterflies flitting in the warm sunlight.

Around the flower beds of the parkland on a Summer's day
Such beautiful memories till...
