The Bold Feathered Minstrels

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 01:34 by Francis Duggan
In all sorts of weather at all times of year
The song of the magpies so pleasant to hear
The black and white birds with the beautiful song
Once seen and once heard one cannot get them wrong
Of all of the birds of Australia few are as well known
The bold feathered minstrels have a charm of their own
On their breeding season they sing in the night
How lovely to hear them pipe in the moonlight
Their borders the males do fearlessly defend

Fond Thoughts To My Mind

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 01:29 by Francis Duggan
Fond thoughts to my mind always seem to be near
The song of the robin i fancy i hear
In March when the first flowers of Spring do appear
In old fields in sky miles a long way north of here
The weather still chilly though milder days ahead
And the cattle fresh out of their wintering shed
Enjoy the young grass a welcome change from living on silage and hay
On nourishing grass they gain weight by the day
In bare fields by the hill young lambs...

When Nature Is In An Angry Mood

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 01:26 by Francis Duggan
Of the length of any human life no guaranteed time span
The earthquake followed by a tsunami in northern Japan
Claimed the lives of young and old and people in their prime
Nature can erupt in anger anywhere as well as at anytime
The living are left to grieve for their families and friends dead
For the survivors of Nature's wrath there are tough years ahead
When Nature does grow angry she leaves death and injury and heartbreak
And once great buildings...

The Last Red Rose Of The Autumn

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
The last red rose of the Autumn her scattered petals lay
On the grass beside her thorny mother tree for Nature's gleaners of decay
The dark to gray wingless insects who live their lives on the ground
Where fallen leaves and flower petals are such life forms to be found

A week ago she bloomed quite beautiful in the bright sunshine of day
But beauty quickly fades to time since that is Nature's way
The last rose of her mother tree who will give birth...

For As Long as I Live

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 01:16 by Francis Duggan
For as long as i live a memory to enjoy
Of Summers long ago in distant Lisnaboy
Above the old fields the dark swallows did fly
And the meadows scented sweet of the freshly mown hay of July
I may be ageing but my memories young remain
And in my flights of fancy i visit again
Old places embedded in my memory
Not hard to visualize the what used to be
The buzzings of the wild honeybees taking nectar from the flowers
That bloomed in the fields...
