In Lonely Saltbush Country

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 01:31 by Francis Duggan
In lonely saltbush country where so much saltbush grow
The only bird one hear and see is the dark pale eyed crow
Cawing mournfully on a dead gum tree beside the quiet roadway
His voice echoing in the silence of the dawning cool and gray.

The black tribes lived and hunted here long before white people came
And perhaps for the saltbush country they had some other name
In the quiet saltbush country back then there were more trees
In the shade...

Mopoke Mopoke Is All It Has To Say

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 01:27 by Francis Duggan
In the still of night I hear the boobook cry
Mopoke mopoke in the parkland nearby
Mopoke mopoke is all it has to say
The bird that hides from the bright lamp of day
A voice quite unmelodiuos though clear
That in the night time one does often hear
An owl that the small songbirds greatly fear
They fly from their roosting perch when boobook's near
Small enough for to kill and delicious for to eat
To boobook's taste buds quite a tasty treat...

A Lovely Day In September

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 01:23 by Francis Duggan
The nesting songbirds are singing on the sunlit bushes and trees
On this warm day in September of close to thirty degrees
The cows in the nearby paddock sit and chew their cuds at ease
And there is a pleasant freshness in the freshening coastal breeze
For the second week of the Spring a very warm day
The fruit bearing trees looking beautiful in their blooms of pink and gray
The poets and the artists by such beauty feel inspired
Of singing Nature's...

The Sun It Is Shining On A Beautiful Day

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 01:19 by Francis Duggan
The sun it is shining on a beautiful day
And the weather forecast has more of the same on the way
The magpies are singing on the sunlit trees
Their flute like notes carrying in the freshening breeze
The fruit trees cloaked in their pink blooms of the Spring
The wonders of Nature is an amazing thing
A poet of such beauty would feel inspired to write
A poem for others to read and recite
And the artist on canvas would feel inspired to draw...

In September In The Southern Country

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 01:16 by Francis Duggan
In the Townpark the pee wees are calling and the magpies are piping on the sunlit trees
And the familiar song of the blackbird is carrying across the street in the freshening breeze
Spring has arrived to the Southern Country and with her she has brought her greenery and flowers
Everywhere looking so green and so healthy the water dams near full from the recent showers
Were I a poet I would write of such beauty that comes to life in the Southern Spring
In their...
