Far North In Duhallow

Posted Wednesday 19th May 2010 at 02:53 by Francis Duggan
Far north in Duhallow near the Town of Millstreet
In the flat and rushy old fields where the Cails and Finnow meet
And flows on to the Blackwater that flows to the ocean shore
A journey through north east of Cork County of sixty miles or more
In the coolness of late September the leaves are turning brown
And the birds are no longer singing in the groves near Millstreet Town
And though the weather cool and unsettled the hills are clear of snow
And...

The Hardest Thing Of All To Say

Posted Wednesday 19th May 2010 at 02:43 by Francis Duggan
The hardest thing of all to say is the parting goodbye
To friends you never more may see before you travel far by sky
For to start a new life elsewhere far from your old Homeplace
Where you were known by many and your's was a loved face
I've been through such an experience of such feelings I do know
I had to struggle to contain the tears that yearned to flow
Some of my past friends are with the dead and some ageing and gray
And some like me from the...

Perhaps He'll Never Again

Posted Wednesday 19th May 2010 at 02:40 by Francis Duggan
Perhaps he'll never again on a sunlit evening in May
Climb and stand on the hill above the woodland from here so far away
And watch and hear the brown lark singing a small speck in the sky
The songster of the mountain to sing he has to fly,
A man from the northern mountains the years have left him gray
It surely can be said of him he has known a better day
He never fathered children he never had a wife
But he is not short of women they still play...

I Am From The Place

Posted Wednesday 19th May 2010 at 02:36 by Francis Duggan
I am from the place of the gray hooded crow
Where the Cails and Finnow to the Blackwater flow
Far north of here even as the bird does fly
A long journey by sea or a long journey by sky.

I am from the place where the badger at night
Is searching for food in the fields in moonlight
Where the dipper does sing in the clear mountain rill
That babbles downland from the field by the hill.

My first breath of air in the World I did draw...

The Gray Shrike Thrush Is Singing

Posted Tuesday 18th May 2010 at 02:34 by Francis Duggan
A leading songster of the Spring of the year
The whistle of the gray shrike thrush so pleasant to hear
He finds his food on the ground and he sings on the trees
And his music carries in the freshening breeze,
I could stand and listen to him all day long
The plain looking bird with the beautiful song
You hear his voice once and you know it again
The song of the bird in your mind does remain
As from tree to tree around his borders he fly
