I Am Only Reminiscing

Posted Monday 16th November 2009 at 22:29 by Francis Duggan
When I was a young fellow and that's going back in time
John Twomey the master wordsmith was Duhallow's Prince of Rhyme
And the travellers in their horse drawn vans they travelled far and wide
On the main roads and the by roads of the green old countryside.

On Summer evenings in the meadows as I can well recall
I heard the corncrake calling as darkness began to fall
But the earlier cutting of the grass their nests and eggs destroyed
And their...

The Old Finnow River

Posted Monday 16th November 2009 at 22:24 by Francis Duggan
Swollen by heavy rains that melt the mountain snow
Bank high by Millstreet Town the old Finnow flow
A river that will flow till the end of time
That has inspired poets to song and to rhyme,
The old Finnow river will flow forever more
On to the Blackwater that flows to the ocean shore
In the Spring and Summer the brown skylark fly
Above the rank rushes to sing in the sky
And robin on the silver birch sings his familiar song
Near where...

In Point Smythe

Posted Monday 16th November 2009 at 22:21 by Francis Duggan
In Point Smythe quite close to Venus Bay
From where I am now in distance far away
The kangaroos known as the eastern gray
In the paddocks graze in the gloaming of the day,
On the coastal mudflats the tiny crabs are out
In their thousands they are running about
Sensitive to sound the least noise they do hear
And at approaching footsteps into their holes they disappear,
In Point Smythe miles from the nearest rural Town
The grey butcherbird...

On Hearing A Greenfinch

Posted Sunday 15th November 2009 at 22:36 by Francis Duggan
I know the singer of the song though him I cannot see
His voice I knew in my younger years lives in my memory
The green he wears it blends in well with the foilage of the blackwood tree
Where he sing in the sun and wind in the warmth of January.

The beauty born of Nature for us all to enjoy
In the green groves of Duhallow when I was a school going boy
Amongst the lush green foilage his nesting kin did chirp and sing
The distinctive song of...

In My Wild Flights Of Fancy

Posted Sunday 15th November 2009 at 22:27 by Francis Duggan
The blueness of the saltwater the white waves rolling free
In my wild flights of fancy the ocean I can see
The silver gulls and black backed gulls above the white beach cry
And the sun is shining brightly in the clear and sunny sky,
The children in the shallows they laugh and splash and run
In the coolness of sea water their way of having fun
On a pleasant day in Summer of 25 degrees
And there is a soothing freshness in the freshening ocean breeze,...
