An Earthly Utopia This Beautiful Place

Posted Monday 19th April 2010 at 22:14 by Francis Duggan
The long range weather forecast is for warm and sunny and fine
The spotted doves coo in the morning sunshine
In the coastal park the song of the pee wee
In the warmth and quiet of the town by the sea.

Above the wide white beach in the sunlit sky
The coastal avian food beggars the silver gulls cry
Small waves of saltwater gently to the beach roll
The ocean this morning at peace in it's soul.

An Earthly Utopia this beautiful place...

In A Place Far Away

Posted Monday 19th April 2010 at 22:12 by Francis Duggan
A long way from here this far southern shore
From the high fields of Clara by old Claramore
Yet in my flights of fancy I hear the clear rill
Babble through Claraghatlea from it's home by the hill
The old fields that often inspired me to rhyme
Have not changed that much with the passing of time
And the birds by their song are not hard to recall
In the Natural landscape few changes at all
The scratchy notes one ought to never mistake

A Visualization Of Semaphore

Posted Monday 19th April 2010 at 22:09 by Francis Duggan
The wide beach and the long jetty two things I like about Semaphore
A beautiful Town by the ocean I say what has been said by others before
The long Streets of Semaphore Road that end at the beachfront of cafes and community clubs
In a place that is known for it's character and it's famous old hotels and pubs
An old coastal Town in South Australia a historical place worthy of note
Of endearing characters and cultural people and many an artist and musician and poet...

What Climate Change Is About

Posted Monday 19th April 2010 at 22:05 by Francis Duggan
The farm dams low and the creeks are long dry
And no clouds of rain in the blue sunny sky
From the sun the cattle are sheltering in the shade of the trees
On a day in late Summer of thirty degrees
A four hours drive from here bushfires have left hundreds of people dead
And killed at least one million animals or so it is said
Have burnt a few thousand homes to the ground
And blackened the landscape for hundreds of kilometres around
And further...

In The Ageless Old Fields

Posted Sunday 18th April 2010 at 22:25 by Francis Duggan
A long way from here this far southern shore
To old Claraghatlea by the road to Rathmore
But the fields of my youth do not seem far away
For in fancy I do visit there every day.

In the ageless old fields where the rank rushes grow
The rivers often bank high to the Blackwater flow
In distance quite far but the memories remain
And in memory I walk on the home ground again.

The stormwater gurgling in the roadside drain
And...
