In The Late Southern Fall

Posted Tuesday 22nd June 2010 at 01:38 by Francis Duggan
The shufflewings gone north to places far away
They will not be seen here for many a day
They like to Overwinter in the warmer clime
They will be back home to breed in seven months time
The lessons of Nature for us are not few
Though every day from her we learn something new
And though of Nature's ways little we can claim to know
Our wonderment of her only seems to grow
The dark clouds of twilight across the gray sky crawl
On this calm...

The Roar Of The Ocean

Posted Tuesday 22nd June 2010 at 01:35 by Francis Duggan
Before the first skylark did take to the wing
And in the clouds above his breeding grounds did sing
And before the first flowers bloomed in the warmth of Spring
The rumble of the ocean was a familiar thing
Forever and in that I mean forever more
It's huge waves will splash on the rocks by the cliffs of the shore
From a gentle lapping sound to a rumble it's voice can quickly grow
How old is the ocean would anyone know?
Thousands of centuries...

In Some Ways We Pay

Posted Tuesday 22nd June 2010 at 01:30 by Francis Duggan
In some ways we pay for the success we do gain
There is no such a thing as a life free of pain
Before holding her newly born girl or boy
The birth pains for the mother preceded the joy
We do have our good times though good times do not last
And the clock on our lives does keep ticking on fast
And on ageing and death we do not have a say
For each one of us there's a last night and day
Even the wealthy and influential who command great power...

Back There In Duhallow 'Tis Prime Of The Spring

Posted Tuesday 22nd June 2010 at 01:26 by Francis Duggan
Back there in Duhallow 'tis prime of the Spring
Lambs frolic in the high fields and the nesting birds sing,
On trees, bushes and hedges and on the ditch of every bohreen
Nature's own bluebells in clusters to be seen
The hawthorns cloaked in their blooms of white to gray
And the old fields resplendent in their wildflowers of the May
The cattle are thriving on lush grass to their knees
And the warm air is full of the buzzings of flies and of bees...

Here In My Home From Home

Posted Monday 21st June 2010 at 01:18 by Francis Duggan
To my old homeplace could not drive from here by car
And even to my homeland shores to go by plane seems far
Perhaps now I'd be a stranger there I am a migrant here
But memories of what was to me are ever near
In those old fields that first inspired me to rhyme
'Tis May there now the Spring is in her prime
The old fields lush and green from recent showers
And looking lovely in their Nature's flowers
With nesting borders to defend in Spring...
