The Woods Around Old Marysville

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 02:35 by Francis Duggan
The woods around old Marysville are looking green again
Though bad memories of the massive fire with the survivors will remain
Of family members friends and neighbours that they never more will see
Black Saturday February the seventh 2009 etched in their memory
Of the day the huge fire came to Marysville burning homes to the ground
Bringing death and leaving blackness in the countryside for miles around
A tragic day for Marysville where many lives were lost...

Bill In His Days As A Farmworker

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 02:31 by Francis Duggan
Bill in his days as a farmworker witnessed many plagues of mice
He said the damage done by the tiny creatures it wasn't very nice
For the farmer to look at some of his grain crop by them destroyed
To the huge dent in his profit he wasn't overjoyed.

Until in his forty fifth year he married Katie his now devoted wife
He was an itinerant farmworker for twenty five years of his life
From shearing to other Seasonal work, horsebreaker and Jackaroo

I Once Was A Boy As You Are Now

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 02:27 by Francis Duggan
I once was a boy as you are now when my hair was dark brown
In Claraghatlea far north of here near famous Millstreet Town
The sports I played and that you play as different as can be
But your strong bond to Nature makes you similar to me
The yellow robin and the rufous whistler, the magpie and the pale eyed crow
Birds that live in the nearby wood by their voices you know
When I was young in Claraghatlea I knew most birds by their song
The dunnock,...

On A Nice Day In The Parkland

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 02:23 by Francis Duggan
The day is sunny, warm and breezy over thirty degrees
And the pee wee of the magpie lark is floating in the breeze
And children laugh in the playground of the parkland by the sea
And flies and bees are buzzing around flowering bush and tree
The harsh calls of the red wattlebirds a familiar sound to me
Even in the big town parkland Nature's beauty for to see
And every day of Nature we learn something new
Her species of flora and fauna are many and...

It Is Cold Now In Duhallow

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 02:21 by Francis Duggan
The wintery wind from Tullig hill down through Aubane does blow
And the high fields by Mushera Mountain wear their blanket of snow
The wet fields by the river with frost are hoary gray
It is cold in Duhallow so very cold today.

Here in this Southern Country the weather warm and fine
In a forecast low of thirty a high of thirty nine
In the warm sun of the afternoon butterflies dance in the breeze
And the honeyeaters chirping on the blossom...
