A World Without Birds

Posted Tuesday 25th May 2010 at 02:54 by Francis Duggan
In years from now will the children of the future on warm evenings in the prime of Spring
On trees and bushes in groves, woods and parklands when flowers are blooming hear the wild birds sing
For a World without birds would be sad to live in and sad to learn that they are becoming rare
These are sad times for people who love Nature and who for Nature's creatures genuinely do care,
A World without birds to think of even painful something that one would not rather contemplate...

On Listening To The News On Radio Today

Posted Tuesday 25th May 2010 at 02:51 by Francis Duggan
On listening to the news on radio today
A report from the Arctic far away
That starving polar bears are killing and eating their own kind
Since seals due to thinning ice for them are hard to find
When Global Warming melts the ice caps of the Arctic shore
The great white bear of the north will be no more
And sad am I so very sad to say
That on Climate Change us humans have some part to play
For Mother Nature on our existence we depend

In Early December By Clara

Posted Tuesday 25th May 2010 at 02:48 by Francis Duggan
It has been twenty three years since I last lived in Millstreet
In Claraghatlea in view of Clara where the Cails and Finnow meet
In early December the hills hatted in snow
And the stream in brown flood waters to the river does flow
Through the rain-drenched fields and by ditch and hedgerow
At a time of year when nothing seems to grow,
In early December by Clara from here far away
The birds never sing at the dawn of the day
The overnight frost...

The Nestlings Of Spring Just Gone

Posted Tuesday 25th May 2010 at 02:45 by Francis Duggan
The nestlings of Spring just gone learning to sing
They will be fine songsters by the birth of next Spring
The young magpies warblings quite good for their age
Though yet quite a way from the perfection stage.

On the second day of December the southern calendar Summer has begun
And white butterflies dancing in the afternoon sun
And the song of the blackbird melodious and clear
Familiar and unmistakeable and so pleasant to hear.

When I Was Younger And Lived In Millstreet

Posted Tuesday 25th May 2010 at 02:42 by Francis Duggan
When I was younger and lived in Millstreet far north of here even by sky
I used to climb to Clara Mountain on pleasant evenings in July
The hill overlooking the old fields just west of the Town of Millstreet
I often picked and ate whortleberries from the heather the small blue fruits tasted so sweet,
The skylark above me was carolling like a tiny musical speck as upwards he flew
I recall I could still hear him singing even though he had gone from my view,
