Late Summer By Mushera

Posted Monday 30th August 2010 at 02:05 by Francis Duggan
The swallows all day long in the cloudy sky
Above the high mountain fields to and fro fly
And wood pigeons birds that are timid and shy
In unison cooing in the woodland nearby
In late Summer by Mushera from here far away
The sun shines intermittently through clouds blue and gray
I worked in the wood there many years ago
Felling pine trees for a living in Winter's frost and snow
In weather far too cold and wet and windy for birds for to sing...

I Know That I Might Feel A Stranger Today

Posted Monday 30th August 2010 at 02:02 by Francis Duggan
I know that I might feel a stranger today
Where I grew into manhood from here far away
And a stranger where I often walked up and down
The undulating sidewalks of old Millstreet Town
Where mine many years ago was a known face
A stranger in Claraghatlea my old homeplace
But old fields I worked in and walked in would still look the same
Many of them I recall by their given name
The children of some of those I went to school with are grandparents...

Magpie Lark Or Mudlark Or Peewee

Posted Monday 30th August 2010 at 01:55 by Francis Duggan
They build their cup shaped nest of mud on branch of tree
The birds known as magpie lark or mudlark or peewee
About them they have an endearing way
You hear them sing peewee all through the day
In Australia birds that everybody know
Larger than a thrush but smaller than a crow
Dainty black and white birds in rural paddocks or town or city park
You hear the peewee of the magpie lark
Of people they show very little fear
They only fly off...

Where The Moyne Waters Flow

Posted Monday 30th August 2010 at 01:50 by Francis Duggan
Swollen by recent heavy rain in flood waters of brown
To the sea near Griffith Island near Port Fairy Town
Through flat coastal paddocks the river crawls it's way
The Moyne ever babbles on by night and by day
The waterway that has inspired story and rhyme
It was very old even in the Dreamtime
In the Summer by the river in the shade of the trees
Australia's first people danced their Corroborees
Long before their way of life was to change forever...

I Do Not Pine

Posted Sunday 22nd August 2010 at 02:02 by Francis Duggan
I do not pine for the wet and frosty Northern Winter
When the cold gale down the bracken hill does roar
But I miss the greenery and the flowers of Springtime
When the birds sing in the high woods of Claramore

And I miss the bluebells blooming by the hedgerows
When the hawthorns wear their white blooms of the May
And I retain the ever pleasant memories
Of Springtime in the old fields far away

When the small brown lark above old...
