On Hearing A Goldfinch

Posted Saturday 9th January 2010 at 00:39 by Francis Duggan
On the power cable above the roadway I hear a goldfinch sing
His song to many country people is a familiar thing
A pretty bird to look at his song one often hear
In the Spring and the Summer in the Southern Hemisphere
His ancestors introduced from Britain from places far away
But in South Eastern Australia often seen birds today
Known by their lovely colours and their low toned twittering song
To the true finches of Europe their pedigree belong...

I'm A Fellow From Old Claraghatlea North

Posted Saturday 9th January 2010 at 00:35 by Francis Duggan
I'm a fellow from old Claragatlea north to say otherwise would be a lie
And a fellow from old Claraghatlea North I will be 'til the day that I die
When people ask me where I come from I say from a place far away
From the old fields by old Clara mountain where I lived for many a day.

A fellow from old Claraghatlea North is all that I ever can be
Though few in the evergreen Townland would now know or recognize me
I was younger and fitter and stronger...

He Still Feels Nostalgic

Posted Thursday 7th January 2010 at 23:55 by Francis Duggan
He hails from a Mountain Town far north of here
Where weather-wise the Winters are windy, cold, wet and severe
But opposed to the weather the people of his Hometown at heart warm and kind
And better than them one could not hope to find
He miss the old Town at the foot of the hill
And the ever babbling sound of the clear mountain rill
That down through the old fields by grove and hedgerow
To the river that to the great ocean does flow,
The elders...

The Beauty Of Nature

Posted Thursday 7th January 2010 at 23:51 by Francis Duggan
The beauty of Nature is all around me
White flowers in clusters in bloom on the pittosporum tree
And the yellow capeweed in bloom in the prime of the Spring
And on bush and tree nesting birds whistle and sing
The dark gray clouds by the freshening winds blown away
It is such a beautiful October day
A Nature poet of such great beauty would write
A poem that poetry lover would read and recite
In the lush and green paddock that border the Town...

Their Old Country Town

Posted Thursday 7th January 2010 at 23:49 by Francis Duggan
The teenagers most of them leave for Cities far away
And the ageing and the old in the Country Town stay
And the Seasons they come and the Seasons they go
And the creek from the foothills to the river does flow
Yet those born here and who will die here love their Country Town
And to find fault with their Place is to them a put down
Criticism of their Town they do not wish to hear
Their parents and grandparents were born and died here,
In the...
