Just One Memory Of Nature

Posted Tuesday 12th January 2010 at 23:31 by Francis Duggan
I've been a student of Mother Nature but for how long I cannot say
Ever since I've been a young boy in a Country far away
From this great Southern Land of Australia about Nature I got to know
In North Cork in Duhallow where the great Blackwater flow
On it's long journey to Youghal where it flows into the sea
But the years have left me older time too did not wait for me
Since I first fell in love with Nature more than five decades ago
When in the Winter...

A Memory

Posted Tuesday 12th January 2010 at 23:26 by Francis Duggan
In my flights of fancy I often do hear
The male snipe o'er the bog in the Spring of the year
With his whirring wings he makes a drumming sound
As in the night sky he flies around and around
Flying all night above his breeding territory
His mate sits on her eggs quiet and secretive is she
The mysteries and beauty of Nature is a thing to enjoy
And I've loved our Earth Mother since I was a boy
And I do recall the bird without a song

At This Time Of Year In Duhallow

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 23:50 by Francis Duggan
In rushy places by the Town of Millstreet the brown Finnow waters bank high do flow
When the redwings are back in the old fields and Clara wears his hat of snow
The trees stripped bare by the cold north winds that across Duhallow does blow
And the birds of song are not singing in grove and in windswept hedgerow.

At this time of year in Duhallow the fields by the river often under flood
And the streams from the high ground race down hill bank high the colour...

Mt Eccles

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 23:46 by Francis Duggan
The pleasant fluting of the gray shrike thrush to it has a familiar ring
And the mating calls of the koalas can be heard in Mt Eccles in Spring
In the wilds of these volcanic mountains in the Dreamtime in the shade of the trees
The first Human Beings of Australia hunted and had their corroborees
From the bosom of fiery Mt Eccles the red hot lava once did flow,
The proof of a volcanic eruption in the volcanic stones in the countryside below
For miles around...

A Double Decker Load Of Sheep

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 23:43 by Francis Duggan
A double decker load of sheep were bleating as the small town the truck passed by
I thought to myself they must be uttering to me a help us cry
Their loud bleatings told of their stress of them a five hour drive ahead
Today is their last day of life tomorrow they will be dead
Food for human meat eaters I am one who eat meat
Though for them I did feel pity as the truck passed down the street
I respect anti cruelty people and vegetarians great credit they...
