In Old Claraghatlea My Life's Journey Began

Posted Sunday 30th May 2010 at 01:37 by Francis Duggan
In old Claraghatlea my life's journey began
And there I was raised and grew into a man
And there I discovered my love for Nature as a very young boy
And learning about her I still do enjoy.

Of old Claraghatlea I so often do dream
And the dipper I hear sing in the babbling stream
That flows to the river from high Claramore
In the fields far north of this southern shore.

In fancy I see the dark swallows of May
Flying above...

Back There Near Caherbarnagh Hill

Posted Sunday 30th May 2010 at 01:32 by Francis Duggan
Back there near Caherbarnagh hill the weather cold today
And from the overnight frost the old fields looking gray
It is even too cold to snow below zero degrees
And not even one leaf remains on the deciduous trees
The migrant redwing thrushes chirp on the windswept hedgerow
And the old stream from the high ground bank high to the river flow
It will be at least nine weeks till the early days of Spring
Till the deciduous trees bud new leaves and the...

The Day Is So Warm And Windy And Dry

Posted Sunday 30th May 2010 at 01:29 by Francis Duggan
The day is so warm and windy and dry
And the sun blazing bright in the blue Summer sky
The cattle shelter from the heat in the shade of the trees
On a very warm high of thirty five degrees
The overgrazed paddocks that border the town
For lack of sufficent rain looking dry, bare and brown
This countryside with lots of rain now could do
A week of showery weather or better still two
Droughts in some places and flooding elsewhere the weather acting...

Ballydaly Between Millstreet Town And Rathmore

Posted Sunday 30th May 2010 at 01:24 by Francis Duggan
Ballydaly between Millstreet Town and Rathmore
A Townland far north of this southern shore
Where the Cails waters to the Finnow does flow
From Kippagh Mountain Lake down through where bracken grow
On through rushy flat fields that are old as time
That centuries ago inspired old bards to rhyme
It once was a place that meant so much to me
And in my flights of fancy I still hear and see
The pink breasted male chaffinch singing on a birch tree...

The World Does Not Have Borders

Posted Saturday 29th May 2010 at 01:55 by Francis Duggan
In reality the World does not have borders that's something humans did create
Like other divisive human made creations like Country, Nation and State
Yet the Earth is of one crust no floor to the sea
At least anyway that's how it seems to me.

Some animals and birds too have borders in that sense to us they relate
Which the male does defend for his young and his mate
They have borders at breeding time mostly in the Spring
And such with them...
