A World Without Birds

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 03:13 by Francis Duggan
I loved them for their beauty and songs even as a young boy
And learning of their ways i still do enjoy
But due to habitat destruction and climate change it does seem sad to say
That bird numbers are dwindling in the World by the day

Some birds quite familiar to you and to me
The children of the future may not hear and see
The Wildlife of the World face an uncertain fate
That does seem a sad thing for to contemplate

Their beautiful...

Where The Araglen Flow

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 03:11 by Francis Duggan
In fancy i can hear a silver back crow
Cawing on a beech tree where the Araglen flow
On to the Blackwater it babbles it's way
Through old fields of Cullen by night and by day
From the Duhallow high countryside of Kiskeam
The Araglen by thousands of centuries has preceded it's human given name
The old river that has inspired the bards to rhyme
Will flow on forever through the Seasons of time
In early Spring in March on a budding birch tree...

On Hamilton Lake

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 03:09 by Francis Duggan
In the reeds the moorhens and coots their dark young do hide
In Hamilton Lake where the musk duck reside
The male with a fleshy bag hanging under his bill
That at ease he inflate and deflate in life his given skill
For it's varied species of waterfowl a place of renown
The beautiful lake close to Hamilton Town
Home to ducks such as pacific black, hardhead and the gray and chestnut teal
A lake that to lovers of waterbirds holds great appeal

That Is The Canine Way

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 03:02 by Francis Duggan
Unloved by your children and forsaken by your wife
Friends always seem to come and to go from your life
But your dog as your friend faithful to you does stay
As your trustworthy companion that is the canine way

Your cat as you stroke her may purr on your knee
But to you she is not faithful as the word can be
Her independent nature does not make her reliable as a friend
For loyalty on her you could never depend

But with your...

The Autumn Has Arrived

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 02:59 by Francis Duggan
In the blue sky a few woolly looking clouds of gray
So good to be living on such a nice day
In the sunlit park to where i'm standing near
The song of the magpie lark pleasant to hear
On this the first day of March the first day of the Southern Calendar Fall
In near to perfect weather with little wind at all
Today a pleasant high of some twenty degrees
Brown butterflies flying around sunlit flowering trees
The flute of the magpie melodious and...
