A Summer's Day In Wonthaggi

Posted Tuesday 14th July 2009 at 01:23 by Francis Duggan
A bright and sunny Summer's morning and clear and blue the sky
And white, brown and spotted butterflies around the garden fly
And the nearby hills of Archies Creek now wear their Summer brown
All in the prime of Summer in old Wonthaggi Town.

The magpie he is piping in the parkland nearby
A thing of natural beauty is always a thing of joy
And sparrows in the backyards keep chirping all day long
Though classified as songbirds they do not have...

The Tiny Plain Brown Wren

Posted Tuesday 14th July 2009 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
The tiny brown wren I remember is one who has a big bird song
And once heard next time you hear him you will not get him wrong
He and his wife together they raise a big family
Up to ten tiny children with them I often times happened to see.

They live in groves and gardens and hedgerows far north and far away
I often heard the male birds singing in April as well as in May
As they flew around their territories from bush to hedge and sapling tree...

A Morning Of Sunshine

Posted Tuesday 14th July 2009 at 01:16 by Francis Duggan
A morning of sunshine and on the sunlit trees
The birds chirp and pipe their often sung melodies
And there is a cool freshness in the cool Summer breeze
And the temperatures pleasant around twenty degrees.

In the warmth of the Summer the old hills near the Town
Have lost their Spring Green they are now looking brown
And not one drop of water in the roadside drain
The drought has set in and we do need some rain.

When birds sing...

The Eve Of New Year's Day

Posted Monday 13th July 2009 at 01:57 by Francis Duggan
The lorikeets are chirping in the bright sun shine
And the yellow tail black cockatoos shred pine cones on the tall monterey pine
To get at the small dark pine cone seeds to them a delicious treat
What is noursishing and good to them most humans dare not eat.

At noon on the eve of New Year the New Year twelve hours away
When bells will ring and people dance for to welcome New Year's day
The day is warm even for the time of year some thirty five degrees...

The Beauty Of Nature

Posted Monday 13th July 2009 at 01:53 by Francis Duggan
The beauty of Nature is such a splendid thing
In the sunlit Parkland the birds chirp and sing
Young magpies are piping on the sheoak trees
And there is a gentle freshness in the mild Summer breeze.

The tiny willy wagtail try to chase the magpies away
From his place in the Park but despite him they stay
They live in his territory him they don't fear
Not always peaceful in Nature or so 'twould appear.

Though the forecast for tomorrow...
