I Often Do Think Of Old Birdsland

Posted Friday 11th September 2009 at 02:22 by Francis Duggan
One day I must re-visit Birdsland a journey I feel I must make
If only to climb up the high wood or walk on the path by the lake
Or hear the swamphen, the coot and the moorhen each quite distinctive in their cry
And see the black duck and the wood duck and watch the shags hang their wings out to dry.

Above the high paddocks of Birdsland the dark swallows sing as they fly
And the loud squawkings of the white cockies are echoing in the evening sky

In The Town Park

Posted Friday 11th September 2009 at 02:18 by Francis Duggan
It is such a beautiful evening the birds sing on the sunlit trees
I sit in the cool shade of the lilly pilly enjoying the freshening breeze
A beautiful day for the Autumn a high of 28 and a low of 24
One might say almost perfect weather than this could anyone wish for more?

People in their Summer wear out walking and some jog and others do run
And parents with their young children sit in the tree shade out of the sun
In the blue sky only a few gray...

The Fox Of Hawthorn Glen

Posted Friday 11th September 2009 at 02:13 by Francis Duggan
He creeps out of his earthy den
And ambles down the lonely glen
His black nose cocked to the twilight air
Sniffing here and sniffing there.

This beast of prey with hair orange red
And bushy tail and pointy head
Slowly moves among the heath
In search of prey to kill and eat.

His perceptive nose makes him aware
That nearby sits a mountain hare
Scarcely three hundred yards away
On this creature he will prey....

The Road To Rathmore

Posted Friday 11th September 2009 at 02:02 by Francis Duggan
The years creeps up on me I'm almost three score
And I live many miles from the road to Rathmore
The road to Sliabh Luachra of cultural renown
Towards the Cork-Kerry border out of Millstreet Town.

My memories are fading of what used to be
Though in my flights of fancy the gray fog I see
Creeping across old Clara and enshrouding him in the drizzling rain
Some times the past it returns for to visit again.

The memories are fading...
