On Wattle Day

Posted Wednesday 8th September 2010 at 01:15 by Francis Duggan
The sun intermittently shines through clouds of blue and gray
On this the first of September today is Wattle Day
And on the first of the Australian Calendar Spring
The nesting birds in the town parkland sing.

The wattles laden in their yellow flowers
Have bloomed through Winter's cool wind driven showers
Pink and or white blossoms blooming on every fruit bearing tree
And the wattles in bloom a lovely sight to see.

The day is...

Our Earth Mother Nature

Posted Wednesday 8th September 2010 at 01:11 by Francis Duggan
The dinosaurs the ways of time since have long gone
They belonged to Nature and Nature lives on
The same Nature who provides for the family of man
The one true immortal on her no time span
Of Nature's ways little we do seem to know
Yet our wonder of her only does seem to grow
The one with the unrivalled creative powers
She creates the trees and the grass and the flowers
Her unrivalled beauty we see every day
And to view it money we do...

On Seeing Swans With Their Cygnets

Posted Wednesday 8th September 2010 at 01:05 by Francis Duggan
A male and female black swan and their four gray cygnets I see them swimming on the lake today

They looked so fluffy no more than a week old quite safe from danger with mum and dad quite near
The sun between the showers shone for a brief spell typical for late August in late Winter of the year
The first young swans I have seen of this their breeding season the species survival on...

In Fancy I Can Hear

Posted Wednesday 8th September 2010 at 00:58 by Francis Duggan
In fancy I can hear a silver back crow
Cawing on a tall beech tree where the Blackwater flow
In fields of Duhallow on a Summer's day
To the distant Atlantic babbling on it's way
Where I grew to love Nature when I was a boy
The good memories of what were are mine to enjoy
Yes the pleasant memories are mine to recall
The cock pheasant crew where the rushes grew tall
And the skylark a musical speck in the sky
The little brown bird that...

Far South Of

Posted Monday 30th August 2010 at 02:11 by Francis Duggan
Far south of Mushera and Caherbarnagh and the Paps of Shrone
And Clara and Gortavehy with the face of stone
From Claraghatlea in Millstreet on the road to Rathmore
My life's journey has taken me to this far Southern Shore.

In post famine days back in time quite a span
The exodus of people out of Ireland began
In any town or village or on any city street
A person from Ireland one is likely to meet.

Remote from the suburbs or...
