And Yet In Fancy

Posted Friday 11th June 2010 at 10:22 by Francis Duggan
In fancy I can hear the male pheasant crow
In the damp field by the river where rank rushes grow
And I can hear old Cails the one with the murmuring song
By dykes and hedgerows babbling along
In Claraghatlea where few nowadays I'd know
The grass growing winds of early April blow
And the robin's song is melodious and clear
He sings his finest at this time of year
In Millstreet town a stranger I well might be
Few nowadays there would even...

The Deceased Nature Poetess

Posted Friday 11th June 2010 at 10:19 by Francis Duggan
So sad to hear that the old poetess has died
She was a credit to her countryside
So much of Nature's ways that she did know
In death her legend it will only grow
On saying so I'm not saying what is new
That as a Nature Poet her equals only few
Her bird and animal poems in them have beauty rare
A Nature Poet with any to compare
A natural poet one who was born to write
Her lyrical verses easy to read and recite
A humble person in...

Australian Shelducks

Posted Friday 11th June 2010 at 10:16 by Francis Duggan
Out of the breeding Season to moult on shallow lakes they congregate
The female though pretty not so as her handsome mate
With dark brown on chest and mostly darkish
And with white ring around either eye
With her ever devoted mate to her nearby,
The handsome male with white ring around neck, dark head and uppers and breast of chestnut brown
Birds I've yet to see on lake in a park of a town
Australian shelduck or mountain duck or chestnut breasted...

In Early April In Victoria

Posted Friday 11th June 2010 at 10:14 by Francis Duggan
The sound of the freshening wind in the tall trees
And the buzzings of flies and flying insects and bees
And the birds chirp and sing in the morning sunshine
And the weerloos are calling on the monterey pine,
Good memories to cherish and for to recall
Of this beautiful day in the Southern Fall
To this beautiful place I feel Utopia is near
In early April in Victoria a pleasant time of year
The leaves on the deciduous trees turning brown

Drought Times

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:56 by Francis Duggan
The creek that once flowed from the hills it's babble has died
Out there in the sparsely treed brown countryside
The drought ravaged paddocks are bare brown and dry
And not one sign of rain in the sunny Autumn sky
Financially for the farmer another bad year
At a cheap price he sold off most of his cattle and sheep animals he had bought in dear
Due to a shortage of grass and the increased price of hay
Most of his animals he had to sell at a financial...
