To Sing Nature's Praises

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:51 by Francis Duggan
There is so much about her to love and admire
To sing Nature's praises one never could tire
The World's greatest super power despite what some say
The beauty of her creations we see every day
The one worthy of our admiration and praise
Her flora and fauna never cease to amaze
All life forms live off of her including us human kind
Yet to abuse her for our gain many of us too inclined
I have loved her since I was a very young boy
And walks...

By The Far Away Town

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:49 by Francis Duggan
In the wooded hill by the far away town
The nesting birds sing as the sun is going down
And bluebells in bloom on the ditch of the bohreen
And everywhere looking so lush and so green
In this Southern Land the young migrant will not stay
His true love waits for him in the town far away
He feels homesick and lovesick he'll be back home in May
When the hawthorns are wearing their blooms white to gray
The lust of the wander has drawn him far south...

When It Comes To Bullfinches

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:45 by Francis Duggan
When it comes to bullfinches the orchardist not one to pretend
When he says these birds to me will never be a friend
They eat the flowers of my apple trees in May
Of any good of them I do not have to say
Yet bullfinches have more admirers than foes
The male his pink breast like a blooming pink rose
With his plainer yet pretty wife on branch of sunlit tree
They are indeed a pretty sight to see
And than most humans are male bullfinch is more...

Black Cormorants

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:40 by Francis Duggan
They can be seen on inland lake or waterway
Or in any coastal estuary or bay
Fishing people do not see them as a friend
To like them they do not even pretend
'Tis said that fishing stocks they do deplete
With commercial fishers they regularly compete
But black cormorants have to eat fish for to live
Though for that the fishers them will not forgive
In Australia in numbers black cormorants abound
In islands they build their nests of sticks...

On Barn Owls

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:37 by Francis Duggan
To those who know of it a familiar cry
The harsh scream of the barn owl in the night sky
White oval face, mottled brown uppers and unders of gray
A bird that is seldom seen in light of day.

For roosting and nesting in old church spires and barns 'tyto albas' are known
Such places they like for to claim as their own
Though to where humans live they roost and nest nearby
Of our kind to say the least they do seem shy.

Small ground...
