Leave Nature To Nature

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:59 by Francis Duggan
Have you ever seen the offspring of a cross between a sheep and goat
Of the parents in the young one you can see a bit of both
With the physical appearance of a goat and sheep strange as that may appear
Born of an act of Nature and in Nature of stranger things one does hear.

And anything in Nature is never a strange thing
A cross between a starling and a myna has a pleasant song to sing
But when humans tamper with Nature 'tis there the wrong comes...

Jack Gleeson's Kelpie

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:56 by Francis Duggan
Though little information on him in which to read
Jack Gleeson a young stockman founded the kelpie working breed
Of dog in Casterton in Victoria in eighteen seventy one
They rival the border collies as farm dogs next to none.

And who was this Jack Gleeson little of him I seem to know
He worked as a stockman in Casterton more than a century ago
He swapped a horse for a female pup off of the nephew of George Robertson of Warrock

Those Cruel To Animals

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:51 by Francis Duggan
Those cruel to animals can be cruel to people they find their pleasure on inflicting pain

They even are bordering on the psychotic in distinguishing on what is wrong from right,
Those cruel to animals surely are powerless people when they behave in such a cruel way
If you are...

On The Last Time I Saw Old Ballydaly

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:46 by Francis Duggan
On the last time I saw old Ballydaly the weather it was cold enough to snow
And the river from Kippagh along by Feirm bank high on down towards Annagloor did flow
It was an overcast November morning and on a naked birch a lone gray crow
Was cawing his voice echoed in the silence of an empty landscape all of those years ago.

Many Seasons since have come to Ballydaly and many Seasons gone the way of time
The young children back then are now in their twenties...

In Mt Eccles

Posted Thursday 17th September 2009 at 00:38 by Francis Duggan
In Mt Eccles surrounded by wooded volcanic cliffs is green old Lake Surprise
That echo to the wood duck calls and the dusky moorhen cries
Along the cliffs above the lake gray gum and blackwood grow
From the look out deck the view is breath taking Nature's beauty is on show.

On the gum trees beyond the cliffs one hears the pied currawong
Crimson rosellas pipe and ravens caw and the
magpies are in song
And the laughter of the kookaburras is...
