Abandoned Eggs

Posted Monday 15th March 2010 at 20:37 by Francis Duggan
I saw two green blotched eggs on short grass on the ground
Masked lapwing eggs though none of their kind anywhere near around
Birds quite defensive of their territory
Their absence seemed quite puzzling to me
The abandoned eggs to the touch seemed quite cold
A thing of natural beauty to behold
No angry lapwings screaming above my head
Methought the owners of the eggs may be dead
The masked lapwing or spur wing plovers their eggs and young defend...

Yellow Rumped Thornbills

Posted Monday 15th March 2010 at 20:34 by Francis Duggan
Searching for insects on the ground them I often do see
Such tiny birds their eggs small as a pea
With yellow on their rumps of lightish fawn to gray
I see them often though not every day.

Not that much bigger than a butterfly
Yellow rumped thornbills the name they are known by
They live in small flocks and feed on the ground
And they look so tiny as they hop around.

So vulnerable in their defenceless way
To kookaburras,...

Of Global Warming And Climate Change

Posted Monday 15th March 2010 at 20:30 by Francis Duggan
Of Global warming and climate change we read of and hear
The changes in our natural environment gives us reason to fear
Of what does lay ahead for the children of today
We've brought climate change forward by centuries it does seem that way.

The polar ice caps are melting at an alarming rate
Our polluting of our natural environment not something to celebrate
To combat global warming we've left it a bit late
As a species we may well have sealed...

When Nature Grows Angry

Posted Monday 15th March 2010 at 20:27 by Francis Duggan
When Nature grows angry she spreads widespread fear
Of the death and damage left in her wake we read of see and hear
No greater power than her the super power supreme
When compared to her so insignificant we do seem.

When Nature grows angry she leaves death and havoc in her wake
And the life that she gives at anytime she can take
Her Reaper with his scythe claims lives night and day
The young and those time have left feeble and gray.

The Hard Roads Of Life

Posted Sunday 14th March 2010 at 20:38 by Francis Duggan
The hard roads of life I have been up and down
Since I left the old fields west of Millstreet Town
Where Finnow from Gneeves by grove and hedgerow
On towards the Blackwater at Drishane as ever does flow.

In fancy I climb on old Clara again
And hear the lark singing in the clouds of rain
His descendants sing o'er the old hill today
And the clock on my life it is ticking away.

To the father of time we eventually must bow
