From Snippets Of News From Millstreet Far Away

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 02:34 by Francis Duggan
I gather not many pubs in the old town today
From snippets of news from Millstreet far away
The news from every Irish village and town
Is new forms of entertainment and pubs closing down
In the town I was raised near changes happening fast
The place I remember is now of the past
But changes are happening nowadays Worldwide
And now I may feel a stranger in my home countryside
Though some of them did live to be old and gray
The mentors...

When It Is Autumn Here

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 02:30 by Francis Duggan
The woodcock to breed is back on the high ground
And the swallows above old fields are flying around
And the hawthorns cloaked in their white blooms of the May
When it is Autumn here it is Spring far away,
The skylark to sing from the bracken he rise
A musical speck as upwards he flies
Till in the gray clouds from sight he disappear
Yet his beautiful carolling I fancy I hear
Just thinking of Nature a thing to enjoy
I have loved her since...

As The Dark Clouds Of Rain

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 02:24 by Francis Duggan
As the dark clouds of rain are gathering in the sky
The birds sing and whistle in the parkland nearby
From listening to Nature's creatures knowledge of weather we do gain
The birds always whistle and sing before rain
The sun in the heavy clouds hidden away
It was only seen out for a brief while today
Two days ago it was thirty five degrees
Today it is twenty and rain in the breeze
The magpie is piping on a wattle tree
And the magpie...

Snow In Duhallow

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 02:19 by Francis Duggan
The fields and hills and towns of Duhallow are covered in snow
And ice on the pools where the Blackwater flow
On it's way through icy North Cork to the Atlantic Shore
Something not seen or not often heard of before.

The images online of where he walked up and down
Snow on the rooftops and snow on the street
'Tis not a place where one could walk on bare feet.

The winds of early Spring blew with a cold chill
Down the wooded slopes of old Mushera hill
Most days there damp and cold even too cold to snow
Where I cut down pine trees many Seasons ago.

Eoin Connors, Gene Buckley and Dan Joe Kelleher to me worked nearby
We were in wet weather gear the days were seldom dry
In a hard enough way for to earn one's pay
I wonder are they felling pine trees today?
