At Night In Kallista

Posted Tuesday 16th March 2010 at 20:46 by Francis Duggan
At night in Kallista the wood of the white cockatoo
The powerful owl calls out in his mournful woo hoo
Where in the pale moonlight the giant mountain ash trees
Are soughing ever softly in the freshening breeze
The shrill voices of the ring tail possums one cannot mistake
They forage for young leaves from nightfall 'til daybreak
By day their nests of leaves on outer branches can be viewed from the ground
In Kallista wood their numbers seem to abound...

From Early To Mid Spring

Posted Tuesday 16th March 2010 at 20:42 by Francis Duggan
The weather changeable from early to mid Spring
But so nice to hear the nesting songbirds sing
In the town park in the gray dawn of the day
Song in their breeding season to defend territory a huge part seems to play
Yesterday we had some heavy showers of rain
But today the sun shines in the sky again
The cooler weather of the Winter all but gone
And the days will become warmer as the Spring goes on
The parks and paddocks looking lush and green...

The Last Rose Of The Fall

Posted Tuesday 16th March 2010 at 20:39 by Francis Duggan
Her pink petals strewn upon the grass beside her mother tree
In full bloom a thing of Nature so beautiful to see
Where the gleaners of Nature's decay grubs, slugs and insects crawl
Last week she looked so beautiful the last rose of the Fall.

So bare and thorny looking without her leaves and flowers
The rose tree looks forlorn in the cool Autumn showers
Next Summer again pink roses she will wear
The rose tree in bloom has a beauty that's rare....

The Boobook's Call

Posted Tuesday 16th March 2010 at 20:36 by Francis Duggan
When the pale full moon is stealing through the calm and starry sky
'Tis an eerie sort of feeling for to hear the boobook's cry
Mopoke mopoke he cries out unmelodious though clear
At times he seems quite distant and at times he seems quite near
A brown spotted owl that roosts in thick tree foliage out of the sunlight
The boobook's is a familiar voice of the Australian night
So often I have heard them as I lay in bed awake
Mopoke mopoke they cry out...

In The Bogs Of Claraghatlea North

Posted Monday 15th March 2010 at 20:41 by Francis Duggan
In the bogs of Claraghatlea North just west of Millstreet Town
The hare sits in the rushes in her coat of chestnut brown
Of man with gun and man's dog and fox she lives her life in fear
And her's is never a deep sleep as she rests with one pricked ear
In the bogs of Claraghatlea North sunday hunts I used to enjoy
With Pudsy our brown cattle dog when I was a young boy
She often flushed and chased a hare but by the hare she always was outrun
What nowadays...
