The Mountain Ash At Kalorama

Posted Wednesday 15th July 2009 at 01:24 by Francis Duggan
The gum trees at Kalorama not more than seventy years old
But even a young Mountain Ash is a giant to behold
They seem to almost touch the sky standing on the higher ground
And they obscure the mountain scenery for miles and miles around.

The mountain ash at Kalorama they dwarf all other trees
And one can hear them gently soughing in the freshening mountain breeze
And on their higher branches the white cockatoos call
And the laughter of the...

The Pheasant's Nest

Posted Wednesday 15th July 2009 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
On a warm evening on the second day of July
As I walked through the high grass upwards a bird did fly
A bantam sized mottled brown bird with low and short quick flight
Beyond the hedge she disappeared from sight.

There at my feet amongst the high grass as I looked down
In her simple nest her ten eggs of greeny brown
I dared not touch them on them only gazed
At such a thing of Natural beauty quite amazed.

By chance alone the...

Nostalgic Memories Of Old Clara Mountain

Posted Wednesday 15th July 2009 at 01:13 by Francis Duggan
Overlooking Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra and overlooking Millstreet Town
How often in my younger years I remember I often climbed to Clara's Cross and ran all the way down
Through the high fields of Claramore and Claraghatlea but back then I was in my prime
And I too have grown that much slower my master is old father time.

Centuries before the first Humans arrived in Ireland old Clara Hill stood on the higher ground
And even centuries before the birth of...

On seeing Aussie Magpies

Posted Tuesday 14th July 2009 at 01:39 by Francis Duggan
A mum and dad and their two children the children mottled dark brown and gray
The mum and dad are black and white birds they whistle and sing every day
Better known as Australian Magpies though Piping Shrikes their proper name
Most of them are not shy of humans and some of them are almost tame.

Named after the Eurasian Magpies perhaps by the white pioneers
Who came to settle in this Southern Country that is going back two centuries of years
The Eurasian...

In Inchaleigh By Millstreet Town

Posted Tuesday 14th July 2009 at 01:34 by Francis Duggan
In Inchaleigh by Millstreet Town at the dawning of the day
It has been frosty overnight the morning fields are gray
And gray ground frost it has been said always a sign of rain
And bank high flows the old Finnow and bank high flows the drain.

In Inchaleigh by Millstreet Town at the coldest time of the year
The songbirds silent in the backyards the only birds one hear
Are house sparrows chirping by the back doors and on the rafters of the hay shed...
