Every Day From Her

Posted Sunday 6th June 2010 at 01:25 by Francis Duggan
In life we never stop learning as some like to say
And from Nature we learn something new every day
As a teacher any human with her could not hope to compare
Though with us her secrets she never will share
I have loved her since I was a very young boy
And learning about her I still do enjoy
Great artists and writers by her are inspired
And of singing her praises some never grow tired
When I was a youngster that's going back in time
Some...

The Old Pale Eyed Crow

Posted Sunday 6th June 2010 at 01:22 by Francis Duggan
On top of the gum tree the old pale eyed crow
Is talking to his neighbours of his kind of what they would know
Perhaps he is saying to them if this way you do fly
I will show you where food is to here 'tis nearby
Low in rank as songsters but of corvids 'tis known
That when it comes to intelligence in a class of their own
All species of corvids are clever most bird lovers agree
They will not have an argument on that from me
The survival skills...

Far Too Late For Helpston's John Clare

Posted Sunday 6th June 2010 at 01:18 by Francis Duggan
He is arguably England's greatest Nature poet
Yet in his lifetime not seen as one worthy of note
He died in the Northampton Asylum where he had lived for years
But his passing did not stir a Nation to tears

Of his worth as a poet poetry lovers aware
But all that far too late for Helpston's John Clare
Sad and poor and demented when he drew his last breath
But a legend of literature decades after his death.

Forgotten in life after...

Where The Merri Flows Into The Sea

Posted Sunday 6th June 2010 at 01:14 by Francis Duggan
In Summer where the Merri flows into the sea
Parents with their children one often does see
Relaxing and swimming on a nice sunny day
In the cool and shallow waters of old Lady Bay
A beautiful place to relax and keep cool
In the warmth of the Summer in breezy Warrnambool
I fancy Utopia to this place is near
Where the laughter of happy young people I hear
Where the waters of the Merri into saltwater flow
A safe place for their children...

On The Day That Mum Died

Posted Saturday 5th June 2010 at 01:35 by Francis Duggan
The weather was wintery on the day that Mum died
The cold winds of February blew across the countryside
For years ailing of lung cancer her end painful and slow
Of suffering in her life she surely did know
Back in nineteen sixty six that is going back in time
When I was a few years short of my life's prime
Since then many Seasons have come and have gone
But memories of that day in me living on
Not one leaf to be seen on any deciduous tree...
