In Nature No Shortage Of Things

Posted Saturday 12th June 2010 at 01:26 by Francis Duggan
As a writer I am not seen as worthy of note
And I never refer to myself as a poet
Though all of the stuff through the years I did write
You can see on many an internet site
To pen rhymes to Nature I am often inspired
And of singing her praises I've never grown tired
For many years of her I have been in awe
Our marvellous Earth Mother lives by her own law
Her secrets from us she keeps hidden away
Though from her we do learn something...

Memories Of The Silver Back Crow

Posted Saturday 12th June 2010 at 01:23 by Francis Duggan
The voice of a bird that I used to know
In fancy I hear the loud cawing of the silver back crow
In the fading twilight on a sycamore tree
Our past seems to follow us would you not agree?

In the higher fields in the wood by the hill
The weaker young lambs the black and gray birds do kill
No mercy to them the sheep farmers do show
They do hate the sight of the black and gray crow.

In rural areas classified as a pest

From Old Claraghatlea

Posted Saturday 12th June 2010 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
From old Claraghatlea I may live far away
Though the mental pictures in my mind do stay
Of the old fields I've not seen for many a day
And good memories never fade as some are known to say
It's April now in the rushy fields near the Town of Millstreet
Where the Cails from Kippagh and the Finnow do meet
And by the bridge at Drishane into the Blackwater flow
In the home of the rook and the silver back crow
In fancy Nature's feathered minstrels...

April In A Southern Town

Posted Saturday 12th June 2010 at 01:17 by Francis Duggan
An April day in a southern Parkland four months from the Southern Spring
On a sunlit blackwood wattle a male gray backed magpie sing
His all too familiar music beautiful flute like and clear
He is the silver billed Australian who sings the twelve months of the year.

Pleasant and sunny the weather into the sixth week of the Southern Fall
The voices of the magpie larks familiar pee wee pee wee they do call
And the dying leaves on the claret ash are...

A Hen

Posted Friday 11th June 2010 at 10:25 by Francis Duggan
A hen has a comb two eyes a beak and two legs
And a coat of feathers and she does lay eggs
And when she and the rooster does copulate
Her eggs to chickens she does incubate
Of a hen and her kind so little I've known
But I do know she does have a charm of her own
In her own sort of language she communicates with her own kind
A hen is a creature with a thinking mind
Some of her eggs we boil or we fry for to eat
And some of her chickens...
