The Old Cow In The Paddock

Posted Tuesday 1st September 2009 at 00:50 by Francis Duggan
The old cow in the paddock is no different to I
We were born of a mother and one day we will die
We live for awhile death is forever more
None have come back to tell us of life beyond this Earthly shore.

Many of us humans are enamoured in our own conceit
With each other for success we always compete
Yet the billionaire and the pauper will be equal one day
No competition for success where dead people lay.

The Retired Horse

Posted Tuesday 1st September 2009 at 00:47 by Francis Duggan
The tired and aged horse in the paddock his better days they are long gone
Though he is enjoying his old age and for as long as he can he'll live on
In his prime he was used for rounding up cattle he could run as fast as a hare
But now his fastest is a slow trot the poor old bay seems the worst for wear.

The young Jackaroo who used to ride him when he was a fleet five year old
He went to the reaper quite early a story about him is told

A Warm Summer's Day

Posted Monday 31st August 2009 at 01:03 by Francis Duggan
The sun it grows warmer as the temperatures rise

The creek it is empty the roadside drain is bone dry
And in the distance the smoke of the bush fire billows to the sky,
The paddocks brown and bare for miles and miles around
And the sun has soaked every drop of moisture from the ground
The cattle are sheltering in the shade of the trees
On a warm day in January with just a faint breeze
A top of...

At The Foothills Of Mushera

Posted Monday 31st August 2009 at 01:00 by Francis Duggan
At the Foothills of Mushera the Winter days are cold
And the old mountain cloaked in fog a strange sight to behold
I felled pine trees there years ago when snow was on the ground
It surely was a hard old way for to earn one's living pound

But Spring brought joy to Mushera the birds sang all the day
And the hawthorn trees looked lovely in their white blooms of the May
And the cooing of the woodpigeons a pleasant sound to hear
And everywhere...

In Duhallow Now

Posted Monday 31st August 2009 at 00:56 by Francis Duggan
The redwings soon will fly back to the Northlands when their home breeding woods are clear of snow
Far distant from the old fields of Duhallow where the Blackwater towards the ocean flow
For migratory birds remain true to their nature they always return home to breed in Spring
In their home wood they nest and raise their offsprings and in their home wood their finest songs they sing.

And towards Duhallow from their southern wintering quarters the swallows high...
