The Willy Wagtails

Posted Tuesday 28th April 2009 at 06:45 by Francis Duggan
They like the open country sparse in trees
And spend their day hours chasing flies and bees
From fencing post they seldom venture far
And you'll always see them near where fences are.

White undersides and upper parts all black
They oft hitch ride on cow or horse's back
On look out for grasshoppers to their taste buds quite sweet
Who expose themselves as they hop from trampling feet.

The Willy Wagtails no strangers to fame...

Back home in North Dakota all though the months of Spring
In grove and wood and garden the red cardinals sing
How beautiful a memory a pleasant sunlit day
And the cardinals are singing in the joyful month of May.

Her mate at breeding time wears darker coat
Whilst she all year round wear the lighter gray
I've oft times watched them ride the ocean waves
When tide was roaring into Blackrock bay.

Aquatic birds the water is their home
And a water World the only World they've...

There In The Gray Of The Morning

Posted Tuesday 28th April 2009 at 06:32 by Francis Duggan
There in the gray of the morning in the faint Winter sunlight
I saw a bird once familiar once to me a common sight
Greenfinch brought here by the white man and introduced in this Country
In his drab green cloak of Winter chirped on the mirror bush tree.

Seeing and hearing the green bird stirred memories of far away
Of the green hedgerows of Ireland in their bright blossoms of May
Over the trees of the headland in butterfly like courtship display...
