By The Mountains Far Away

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 02:52 by Francis Duggan
In fancy I can hear the babbling rill
Flowing down the high fields near the town by the hill
With wildflowers in their thousands to be seen
And the old fields are looking lush and green
The long grass flattened by the river to tell where the flood had been
And snowdrops, bluebells and primroses on the ditch of the bohreen
And on the hedgerows and in the leafy groves the nesting birds sing all the day
Amongst Nature's greenery in April far away...

The White Winged Triller

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 02:49 by Francis Duggan
The female in brown and gray the male's breeding beauty lack
When he is quite a striking white and black
By sight or sound one cannot get him wrong
For he has such a clear and melodious song
Yet in the World of birds they are strangers to fame
The white winged triller is their common name
They do seem rare and in large numbers do not abound
And they feed on insects they find on trees and on the ground
Although them I have been privileged to...

Of Nature

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 02:46 by Francis Duggan
With pictures and stories and poems to recite
The artists sketch her beauty and the writers of do write
Her flora and fauna, her seas, waterways and land
Her majestic beauty respect does command.

Her forests and deserts her mountains and hills
Her rivers, streams and her creeks and her silver tongued rills
That flows down the high ground to the seas far away
And babbles forever by night and by day.

The fish of her waters and...

Lake Bolac Is Dead

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 02:43 by Francis Duggan
Lake Bolac is dead that even seems sad to say
Where a great lake was only black earth and clay
In these times of Climate Change nothing seems to surprise
Though at a waterless Bolac scarce can believe my eyes
They did have their eel festival there of late
But the eels to the lake had a similar fate
Not even one pool of water in Lake Bolac today
On a dry lake bed water birds do not stay
The wild duck, coot, swamphen and moorhen have gone to...

White Throated Treecreepers

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 02:35 by Francis Duggan
For a small woodland bird it does have a loud song
And it's voice from once heard you can never get wrong
In behaviour to most of it's kind much the same
The white throated treecreeper is it's common name
Their nests seldom found and not easy to see
In cavity high on the trunk of a tree
With dark brown on back, spotted unders and white on throat
In the World of birds not seen as worthy of note
With their long thin bills for insects bark they...
