I Long For A Place

Posted Saturday 19th February 2011 at 00:24 by Francis Duggan
I long for a place by a river away from the streets of the town
Where musical shrike thrush is whistling in his feathers of light gray to brown
Away from the noise created by humans where the water goes gurgling along
And where gray butcherbird he is piping he has such a beautiful song

I long for a place in the country away from the loud city street
A small bungalow off of a by road near where a creek and a river do meet
Of such a place i often daydream...

I Have Seen The Sunset Of Many A Day

Posted Saturday 19th February 2011 at 00:20 by Francis Duggan
I have seen the sunset of many a day
Since i left my first homeplace from here far away
Claraghatlea about a mile west of Millstreet Town
Since then on many roads i've driven up and down

For my years of life materially i do not have much to show
And by such things one is judged by i have come to know
And though my best years in physical terms to the forever gone
I too do love life and i want to live on

Yet my thoughts often...

In Nature

Posted Friday 4th February 2011 at 02:12 by Francis Duggan
Pink roses in bloom on their thorny mother tree
In Nature there is always great beauty to see
And crimson rosellas chirping in the sunlight
To look at one can say a beautiful sight

The artists and writers to sketch and to write Nature does inspire
And of singing her praises one never could tire
And though we learn something new about her every day
Her secrets from us she keeps hidden away

The pleasant aroma that wafts in the...

Whilst You Slept

Posted Friday 4th February 2011 at 02:07 by Francis Duggan
The tops of some of your tomato plants chomped on overnight
By a wallaby or a possum look an ugly sight
Due to the furry nocturnal marsupial it is obviously clear
That your tomato crop will be a poor one this year
Like snails do nocturnal creatures like young plants to eat
And unsprayed tomato plants to them a tasty treat
Whilst you slept of your plants they enjoyed a good feed
Though them in your garden you sure do not need
And though for...

When I Talk Of Home

Posted Friday 4th February 2011 at 02:02 by Francis Duggan
It may not be by Cashman's Hill my last remains will lay
But that will not matter to me when i've lived my last night and day
The migrant Athenian talks of Athens the migrant Roman talks of Rome
And i talk of Millstreet when i talk of home
I am from the place of the silver back crow
Where the Cails and Finnow to the Blackwater flow
In my flights of fancy the carolling lark i do hear
Above the rushy fields in the Spring of the year
But absence...
