Far North

Posted Sunday 6th December 2009 at 23:04 by Francis Duggan
Far north even as the crow fly from here far away
In leafy groves, woods and hedgerows nesting birds sing all day
And blackbird will sing his fanfare of the May
Before the sun rise in the dawn cool and gray,
The song of the dipper I fancy I hear
And the stream that he sings in to me does seem near
And I hear the babble of the upland rill
As it scurries down from the foot of the hill,
In fancy I visit old places at this time of year
Where...

In His Nostalgic Flights Of Fancy

Posted Sunday 6th December 2009 at 23:00 by Francis Duggan
In his nostalgic fligths of fancy he see the old bohreen
And the old fields and the valleys in their many shades of green
And the hawthorns trees resplendent in their fragile white blossoms of the May
Here he will always be a migrant from a Country far away.

Seven times a great grandfather and time is ticking on
A primary schoolboy of the late forties but the forties has long gone
He has not seen his remaining siblings for thirty years or more...

In The Groves Near Ballydaly

Posted Sunday 6th December 2009 at 22:47 by Francis Duggan
In the groves near Ballydaly the nesting birds in song
The robin and the blackbird are singing all day long
The dunnock in the hedgerow at daybreak one does hear
And the tiny brown wren with the big bird voice is singing loud and clear
By the groves near Ballydaly the river winds it's way
Through the old fields down from Kippagh hill it babbles night and day
On down to join the Finnow from it's birthplace at Kippagh lake
The familiar song of the river...

A Memory For To Cherish

Posted Saturday 5th December 2009 at 22:39 by Francis Duggan
White butterflies are dancing in the warm evening breeze
And the house sparrows are chirping on the sunlit garden trees
On a warm day in April in the far Southern Fall
Of the Southern Land's four Seasons the most pleasant one of all,
I love this Autumn weather and though Winter days are near
One has to say of April 'tis a pleasant time of year
Above the sunlit paddock to and fro across the sunlit sky
The dark winged welcome swallows chasing flying...

Our Earth Mother

Posted Saturday 5th December 2009 at 22:36 by Francis Duggan
The poets they sing about her the artists her do draw
And she lives independently of human kind and she has her own law
And one of the laws of Mother Nature is we all must die one day
Like every other life form for that is Nature's way
She is our great Earth Mother the one who feeds us all
Yet our many sins against her are too numerous to recall
Her oceans and her waterways her lands and air we do pollute
And in so doing climate change we have hurried...
