Mid Autumn In The Northlands

Posted Wednesday 12th August 2009 at 01:45 by Francis Duggan
From the high ground of Claramore the old rill gurgles down
Through flatter fields of Claraghatlea a mile from Millstreet Town
And robin on the hedgerow sing his brief song of the Fall
And no mistaking the magpie by his hoarse and chattering call,
The wind from the cold Northlands it blows with a damp chill
And the low clouds only promise rain and the fog crawls down the hill
A cold and wet start to October the wind soughing in the trees
And a forecast...

Mt Rouse

Posted Wednesday 12th August 2009 at 01:43 by Francis Duggan
Mt Rouse in the Southern Grampians it rise above old Penshurst Town
Surrounded by wide open country of dry paddocks stony and brown
Way back when Australia was younger centuries before the first white people came
To live in the Southern Country Rouse coughed up his rivers of flame.

Mt Rouse in the Southern Grampians so little about him is known
He was even old in the Dreamtime he seems lonely all on his own
He has inspired many an artist he has inspired...

On A Morning In Late September

Posted Wednesday 12th August 2009 at 01:39 by Francis Duggan
Above the sunlit paddock just like a small speck in the sky
The little brown skylark is carolling as up to the high clouds he fly
On a beautiful morning in September approaching the prime of the Spring
On bushes and trees all around me the nesting birds whistle and sing.

Each species of bird distinctive by their voice Nature is a marvellous thing
The skylark to proclaim his borders is obliged to take to the wing
In a tussock of grass quite well hidden...

The Superb Lyrebird's Song

Posted Wednesday 12th August 2009 at 01:36 by Francis Duggan
Amongst the songbirds of Australia with the superb lyrebird as a mimic there is none to compare
He can incorporate the songs of the local songbirds in his song something that is quite rare
The voices of the kookaburra, blackbird, butcherbird and currawong
Are just three of the many voices in the master mimic's song
With the World's best songbird mimics the lyrebird he does rate
The voices of the cockatoos, rosellas, whipbirds and shrike thrush he can easily imitate...

When The Angled Onions Are In Bloom

Posted Wednesday 12th August 2009 at 01:33 by Francis Duggan
They are considered as a noxious weed by those who profess to know
But the angled onion look pretty in their blossoms as white as snow
Nicknamed the angled onion because of their oniony smell
In woodlands and shady damp places they seem to thrive quite well.

In September and October when yellow flowers are on the broome
In the Woodlands around Sherbrooke the angled onions are in bloom
The flowers of Mother Nature are blooming everywhere
And...
