On Pale Eyed Crows

Posted Sunday 20th June 2010 at 01:14 by Francis Duggan
They are very clever ornithologists say
These birds I see often and hear every day
Yet little about them I can claim to know
The familiar Australian the black pale eyed crow
Like all corvids not born with a memorable song
Yet by their long drawn out cawing one should not get them wrong
They build a nest of sticks high on branch of tree
Lined with feathers and wool from the ground not hard to see
Four to five pale green blotched eggs the female...

All Alone Whilst I Sleep

Posted Sunday 20th June 2010 at 01:10 by Francis Duggan
I just want to die all alone whilst I sleep
With no one near my bed to grieve and to weep
Don't waste your prayers on me for your own souls pray
Leave my remains with Nature that will be okay.

It has been awhile now since I was a schoolboy
But I've had a good innings life I did enjoy
My life well may end far from where it began
From my early home where I grew to a man.

I grew to love Nature in fields far away
Far north...

May In The Northlands

Posted Sunday 20th June 2010 at 01:06 by Francis Duggan
The woodcock to breed are back on the old hill
And wildflowers bloom on the grassy green banks of the rill
That to the big river goes babbling along
By hedgerows and groves where nesting birds are on song
The hawthorns are in their blooms of white to gray
And the old fields resplendent in their wildflowers of May
And bluebells on the mossy ditch of the bohreen
And everywhere looking so lush and so green
And everywhere I turn to look I can see...

I Hope For To Live

Posted Sunday 20th June 2010 at 01:03 by Francis Duggan
I hope for to live for as long as I can
And die without pain in my sleep as a very old man
And though respect for the religious beliefs of others I show
Of a life after death I cannot say I do know
Though each to their own beliefs to all does apply
I cannot say I believe in a World ruled by a God in the sky
Though billions of people of different religions to their God do pray
Suppose each to their own as some do like to say
The Goddess I know...

'Tis Not Out Of Love

Posted Saturday 19th June 2010 at 00:56 by Francis Duggan
'Tis not out of love that male songbird does sing
But to proclaim his territory in the prime of the Spring
In his musical notes that we love to hear
To males of his own kind a message of fear
Birds sing on the ground, bush, tree and on the wing
And to them song is a territorial thing
I used to think when I was a schoolgoing boy
That they only sung out of love and of joy
Till later I learned from a woman quite knowledgeable and wise
That...
