A Memory

Posted Friday 22nd January 2010 at 20:49 by Francis Duggan
It has been awhile now a few decades ago
Since I've been to the place where the Araglen flow
Into the Blackwater but the memories remain
When in fancy I visit Duhallow again
By the Shamrock bridge near Cullen in the Parish of Millstreet
The mighty Blackwater and the Araglen meet
Though from that old country I now live far away
Of that beautiful place memories with me do stay
In fancy the fields of Ahane I do see
Where the robin with...

Global Warming

Posted Friday 22nd January 2010 at 20:45 by Francis Duggan
The temperatures are soaring to 38 degrees
The day is warm and humid with scarce a puff of breeze
El Nino is around again sucking moisture from the ground
And brown and dry the countryside and the landscape all around
The old homes and dry gardens of the quiet old country town
By the old hill green a few weeks back that now is looking brown
The scourge of Global Warming in evidence everywhere
Dry and waterless creek beds no longer seen as rare...

Old Caherbarnagh

Posted Friday 22nd January 2010 at 20:41 by Francis Duggan
On the last time I see old Caherbarnagh
The chill of Winter in the morning breeze
And in the farm sheds cattle for fodder bellowing
And rooks were cawing on the naked trees

The fields with frost were gray in Ballydaly
And it did seem a long way from the Spring
And robin he perched silent on the cypress
Too cold even for him to wish to sing.

On the last time I see old Caherbarnagh
The river in the fields bank high did...

Goddess Nature

Posted Friday 22nd January 2010 at 20:36 by Francis Duggan
For many years I've been in love with Nature
She is my Goddess of that I won't lie
She is the only God that I do know of
And I will love her 'til the day I die.

The only God that I can claim to worship
Her beauty is around me everywhere
I see her every day in places local
And she too lives in the bigger World out there.

I see her in the parks of Town and City
And a walk in her quiet places I enjoy
And I've always...

On Hearing A Grey Shrike Thrush

Posted Thursday 21st January 2010 at 20:47 by Francis Duggan
The shrike thrush who whistles that beautiful air
One would think he is one who does not have a care
It is not out of sheer joy that he bursts into song
But to warn his own kind this acre to him belong
With a mate and young and borders to defend
At this time of year he trusts none as a friend
Of the ways of birds little I seem to know
But the wonders of Nature on me seem to grow
And though her secrets from us Nature does hide away
From...
