Homesick For Warrnambool

Posted Thursday 12th November 2009 at 21:34 by Francis Duggan
He was born and raised there and there he went to school
And he is feeling homesick for his Hometown of Warrnambool
And though he is only twenty two and at the doorstep of his prime
Two years out of Warrnambool for him seems a long time
When the magpie in the moonlight sings in the Town by the sea
And pink blossoms are blooming on the fruit bearing tree
And the whales give birth at Logan's beach in September of the Spring
And the musical grey shrike...

In Fancy

Posted Thursday 12th November 2009 at 21:32 by Francis Duggan
In fancy I am where the Powlett is inching it's way towards the sea
And high above the rank and brown scrubland the skylark I hear and I see
His voice it cannot be mistaken as upwards and upwards he fly
Surely one of Nature's great songsters a small speck in the sunny sky
On down to the sea by the sandhills the Powlett slowly crawls along
And on high sunlit branch of a blackwood the grey butcherbird is in song
His familiar pipe so melodious to my heart he...

The Cold Winds Of January

Posted Thursday 12th November 2009 at 21:27 by Francis Duggan
Last night in my dreams I did hear the winds roar
Above the old high fields of far Claramore
A cold Winter moon crept behind clouds to hide
And on the bleak hillside the hungry fox cried
And a bird so distinctive even in his wild cry
The screech of the barn owl echoed in the sky
A Winter's night in January by old Clara hill
The howling of the wind drowned out the babble of the rill
That towards the big river downland ever does flow

In One Hundred Years From Now

Posted Tuesday 10th November 2009 at 22:57 by Francis Duggan
In one hundred years from now
There will be pig, goat and cow
And donkey, horse, sheep, rabbit and hare
Though many wild birds and animals may be rare.

In one hundred years from now there will be wallaby and roo
Currawong, finch, rosella and cockatoo
Turkey, swan and duck and goose
Wombat, badger, bear and moose.

In one hundred years from now there will be bushes, shrubs and trees
And rivers will flow to the seas

Cattle Egrets

Posted Tuesday 10th November 2009 at 22:51 by Francis Duggan
To the grazing cows or steers they stick close by
To devour tiny things that from big hooves hop or fly
The cattle egrets for them an apt name
Though shy of people when with cattle they seem tame.

The cattle egrets travel far and wide
For miles and miles through the brown countryside
Lanky and fragile and so slow in flight
In Winter paddocks a familiar sight.

Cattle egrets as white as new fallen snow
Are birds that every...
