Port Fairy In September

Posted Saturday 25th September 2010 at 00:09 by Francis Duggan
Between spells of sunshine brief sun showers a typical Spring day
The huge surf waves of Port Fairy are spewing up white foamy spray
The calling of the silver gulls the grumbling voice of the sea
The wildness of Nature is all around me.

The gannets are fishing within view of the shore
Above the huge waves they do circle and soar
And on folded wings dive for their tiny sea prey
A feat they perform many times every day.

The flutings...

Tower Hill

Posted Saturday 25th September 2010 at 00:05 by Francis Duggan
The black swans and mountain ducks and their young out swimming on the lake
And the magpies and the blackbirds in the grayness of daybreak
Are piping their familiar notes on the gum and wattle trees
The calm morning air full of the music of their pleasant melodies
To the descendants of the local first Australians Tower Hill is a sacred place
Their history too old for historians their history to trace
Many centuries ago in the sheltered wooded valleys they...

The Blackbird Is A Bonny Bird

Posted Friday 24th September 2010 at 23:58 by Francis Duggan
The blackbird is a bonny bird he has a lovely song
Once heard and seen he is one that you never could get wrong
In early Spring he and his mate build cup shaped nest of mud and moss and clay
In leafy nook that is well concealed three to five green red spotted eggs she does lay.

The gold billed blackbird as dark as coal his song a joy to hear
He always sings his finest in the Springtime of the year
Yet they keep their secrets to themselves of birds...

Far North Of Here In Duhallow

Posted Friday 24th September 2010 at 23:52 by Francis Duggan
Far north in Duhallow from here far away
The sky overcast it is raining today
The weather is cool around eighteen degrees
And the first brown leaves of September drift down in the breeze
To Mother Earth who receives them the one who receives all
Of her life forms including brown leaves of the Fall
Weatherwise September a changeable time of the year
The swallows flying low a sign that rain is near
Each hour brings them nearer to departure time...

So Good To Be Living

Posted Monday 20th September 2010 at 02:03 by Francis Duggan
So good to be living to see in the Spring
When the wild born birds of Nature do whistle and sing
In the town parkland looking so lush and green
Nature's beautiful wildflowers plentiful to be seen.

On high branch of tree blackbird piping his best
On her four green red spotted eggs his mate sits on her nest
His song so melodious and pleasant to hear
A warning to males of his own kind of his borders stay clear.

With his mate he...
