In Kilsyth

Posted Thursday 20th August 2009 at 08:29 by Francis Duggan
On the flowering gums and banksias of Kilsyth in the bright sunlight of a Spring day
The red wattlebirds and their smaller cousins the brush are calling their voices are a give away
In late November five days from from the first day of Summer the Spring seemed to quickly go by
Yet of Nature and all of her Seasons there is always so much to enjoy.

The Aboriginal people who lived around Kilsyth long before the Europeans came
For all of the flora and fauna...

Nostalgia Again

Posted Thursday 20th August 2009 at 08:24 by Francis Duggan
Nostalgia again it takes us to the past
The good days we had though those times did not last
By the fire-place at night the old people sung
Of the times that had changed since the days we were young,
On looking back they could see the changes as we do today
And the times keep on changing as always they say
The Winters were wet and cold but birds whistled in May
And the swallows were back from places far away,
Happy memories of childhood are...

The Beautiful Rose Of Duhallow

Posted Wednesday 19th August 2009 at 01:43 by Francis Duggan
I fancy on the bog road I see her the one with blue eyes and brown hair
On a beautiful evening in Summer with the sweet scent of hay in the air
The chaffinch sing on the leafy hedgerow and on the ditch of the bohreen
The wildflowers in the sunshine blooming and everywhere lovely and green.

I fancy that I see her smiling she had such a beautiful smile
The beautiful Rose of Duhallow young and lovely and free of guile
In her prime in her early twenties...

The River

Posted Wednesday 19th August 2009 at 01:38 by Francis Duggan
Down through bare fields and by many a hedgerow the streams from the high country flow
Down to join and swell the big river that into a huge water-way grow
On it's long journey to the ocean it babbles along night and day
From it's birth-place in the high valley saltwater seems quite a long way,
It has outlived generations of people the Seasons they come and they go
How old is the very old river the answer anyone does not know
Perhaps it has been flowing...
