In Flights Of Nostalgic Fancy

Posted Saturday 4th July 2009 at 06:50 by Francis Duggan
In flights of nostalgic fancy I see them every day
Those old hills of my younger years far north and far away
Overlooking the green countryside to memory I recall
Too high and rough for men to plough them they haven't changed at all.

Above the morning fog that shrouds them the lark carols as he fly
In his song a wild beauty 'tis a natural thing of joy
And the horned mountain sheep I hear them bleating where some might die they survive
They...

An August Day In South West Gippsland

Posted Saturday 4th July 2009 at 06:46 by Francis Duggan
The weather rather chilly it is cold enough to snow
And the flat paddocks under water where the Powlett river overflow
And even in the distance one can hear the ocean roar
As the tide up the beach races and splash on rocks along the shore.

Yet the magpie he is fluting on this gray August day
He and his wife are nest building Spring cannot be far away
And though rain is in the forecast and in the freshening breeze
The wattlebirds are cackling...

Old Joe From Macroom

Posted Saturday 4th July 2009 at 06:38 by Francis Duggan
On those green banks in Summer wildflowers in their hosts bloom
Where the Sullane gently babbles through the old fields of Macroom
And pink breasted chaffinch singing on the leafy ash tree
Though his memories of the old home place not as fresh as they used to be.

As a boy with his father with their rods and lines they fished for trout
His excitement when he reeled in a big one and on the grass watched it flip about
At the sight of his achievement...

Snowball Is Back With His Hens

Posted Tuesday 30th June 2009 at 01:13 by Francis Duggan
Poor snowball the white silky bantam cock not feeling well of late
His son big red has thrashed him he is in a sorry state
Dried blood on his neck feathers from the comb he has bled
He has really copped a hiding from his oldest offspring red.

Red and his half sibling cock white silky bantams by Steve and Annie to be sold
Around the yard with their parent hens they won't grow tired and old
In the fowl pen they are obliged to wait tomorrow at the break...

Above The Wide Brown Country

Posted Tuesday 30th June 2009 at 01:09 by Francis Duggan
Above the wide brown country in the gray evening sky
A black shouldered kite out hunting he hover as he fly
With quivering wings it hover suspended there in space
Scanning the ground for small prey it hangs in the one place.

And then it flies a little and the same pattern repeat
And scans around with it's microscopic like eyes for mouse or frog to eat
All in the depths of Winter it hunts for smaller prey
But most little creatures under cover...
