Memories Of The Yarra Ranges

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 00:39 by Francis Duggan
The flute like song of the olive backed oriole I fancy I hear
On the tall gums of Sherbrooke in the Spring of the year
The cockatoos call and the nesting birds sing
Oh to be in the Yarra Ranges in the prime of the Spring
Australia's greatest mimic the lyrebird on the higher ground
His beautiful music in the woodland resound
A bird that Nature writers and poets celebrate
The songs of his neighbour birds he imitate,
In October in Birdsland the...

An October Day

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 00:36 by Francis Duggan
The white backed magpie he flutes on the black wattle tree
Where Nature's great beauty is all around me
And I know them by their song though them I cannot see
The black and white birds known to most as pee wee.

The sparrows for to build their nest under the eaves collect feathers and hay
At this time of year they chirp all through the day
And the goldfinches familiar in their twittering song
The voices of some birds one should never get wrong....

How Many More Springs

Posted Sunday 10th January 2010 at 00:24 by Francis Duggan
Another Season I've managed to survive
But I feel so happy just to be alive
The nesting wild birds in the park chirp and sing
On this warm and beautiful day in the Spring
Around the flower beds and blossom laden trees
White butterflies flit in the afternoon breeze
A thing of natural beauty is a thing of joy
I've loved Mother Nature since I was a boy
The reaper who claims all lives will claim the life from me
And how many more Springs...

My Pleasant Flights Of Fancy

Posted Sunday 10th January 2010 at 00:20 by Francis Duggan
My pleasant flights of fancy to me a thing of joy
I hear the skylark singing o'er the fields of Lisnaboy
And in the newly mown meadows the pleasant scent of hay
The places of my younger years I visit every day
The gift of visualization it is a marvellous thing
The dunnock in the hedgerow how sweetly he does sing
The voices of Nature's minstrels in places far away
From my heart they are not distant I hear them every day
The dipper he is singing...

Back There In Old Sliabh Luachra

Posted Sunday 10th January 2010 at 00:16 by Francis Duggan
Back there in old Sliabh Luachra in the countryside around the Paps of Shrone
Where the hill sheep eat the heather around the bracken and the stone
In the days of Ireland's first people it was an ancient place
Though nothing there to tell us of the history of an extinct Race,
In the countryside of the Cork and Kerry border great poets and musicians did reside
And their fame grew into legend they became known Worldwide
Their poetry, song and music lives far...
