The River Of Pigeons

Posted Sunday 31st October 2010 at 23:17 by Francis Duggan
A place to my thoughts that remains ever near
The River of Pigeons so far north of here
In fancy i can hear the nesting birds sing
When the old fields are in their wildflowers of the Spring.

By ditches and hedgerows by night and by day
The river from the hills ever babbles it's way
To the bigger rivers to the saltwater shore
In a voice destined to live on forever-more.

Where i grew to love Nature when i was a boy

Good Memories Of What Was

Posted Sunday 31st October 2010 at 23:12 by Francis Duggan
The memories are all we have left of the past
And the clock on our lives does keep ticking on fast
The now is all that matters as some like to say
Though some i am one who does not see it that way
Often in my flights of fancy i hear the lark sing
Above the brown bog in the prime of the Spring
And the chaffinch who once was familiar to me
In the quiet of the evening sings on a birch tree
Where i had my first lessons in Nature when i was a boy...

On House Sparrows

Posted Sunday 31st October 2010 at 22:08 by Francis Duggan
On the shed rafter in her feathery nest in a straggly ball of hay
The brown house sparrow her pea sized speckled eggs does lay
When born her young do cheep for food all through the day
To chirp and chirp that is the sparrow's way
All year in all weather rain, wind , snow and sunshine
They chirp all the day these favourite birds of mine
In most parts of the World to many quite well known
The house sparrows have a charm all of their own
I have...

The Great Earth

Posted Sunday 31st October 2010 at 22:04 by Francis Duggan
She provides us with our every survival need
The Great Earth is truly a Great Earth indeed
For our very existence on her we depend
Yet we do not treat her as our greatest friend.

We create carbon in the environment for our financial gain
But in so doing we deprive The Great Earth of rain
Without rain she cannot grow crops which to famine gives rise
As the World's most evolved life form we are not very wise.

When The Great Earth...

The Gray Shrike Thrush

Posted Wednesday 13th October 2010 at 01:05 by Francis Duggan
As the sky starts to brighten just before daybreak
The whistling of the gray shrike thrush one ought not to mistake
So flute like and familiar and melodious and clear
A beautiful voice in the Spring of the year
In parks and woods of South East Australia his kind one often does see
Birds familiar to many and familiar to me
Lightish brown on back and unders of gray
Birds I do see often though not every day
He sings in the wood on the bushes and...
