From Here To Birdsland

Posted Wednesday 6th April 2011 at 02:48 by Francis Duggan
From here to Birdsland many a kilometre of roadway
At least a four hours drive without any delay
But in my imagination i am back there today
Where the shrike thrush is whistling in his feathers of gray
Walking on the gravel path by the lake with Jedder my old dog of me trotting ahead
In my thoughts she is living though she is long dead
Whenever i went to Birdsland i took her with me
My faithful companion as true as can be
In the wood overlooking...

There Is More To Nature

Posted Saturday 26th March 2011 at 00:36 by Francis Duggan
There is more to Nature than the birds and the bees
Or the rivers the oceans the flowers and the trees
Or the grass, the shrubs and the creatures we do see every day
She is our lifelong teacher it does seem that way
So little of Nature's ways i can claim to know
Yet my wonder of her only does seem to grow
I've been in love with her since i was a boy
And my walks in her quiet places i do enjoy
Her wonders are many her secrets not few

Through The Gray Clouds Of Dawning

Posted Saturday 26th March 2011 at 00:33 by Francis Duggan
Through the gray clouds of dawning in the brightening morning sky
Familiar birds even sight unseen they call out as they fly
Large dark brown parrots known to many as yellow tail black cockatoo
Whilst some others do refer to them by the name of weerloo
By their voices or appearance birds one should not mistake
They fly above the rural town as dawn begins to break
With their strong beaks they shred the pine cones and crack hard hakea nuts for their seed...

Where The Moyne Waters Flow

Posted Saturday 26th March 2011 at 00:29 by Francis Duggan
How old is this Country would anyone know
Near the Town of Port Fairy where the Moyne Waters flow
On to Griffith Island to the Pacific Shore
It has journeyed forever and will forever more

On the banks of the river in the shade of the trees
Australia's First People danced their corroborees
Way back in the Dreamtime many centuries ago
Before European invasion history tells us so

By the slow moving waters the silence almost profound...

The River To The Ocean

Posted Saturday 26th March 2011 at 00:25 by Francis Duggan
By woodlands and through grasslands and places where rank scrub grow
The river to the ocean forever will flow
On it's sea going journey it receives the waters of drain, creek, brook and rill
The river born as a stream in the lake by the hill
Mostly in a clear flowing gentle babble it flows on it's way
Down from the high country by night and by day
But in heavy rain it roars and overflows in flood waters of brown
And floods through the riverside village...
