On Hearing And Seeing Sulphur Crested Cockatoos

Posted Tuesday 1st June 2010 at 09:08 by Francis Duggan
It is an unmusical sound they do make
Yet even by sound them one could never mistake
They can even be taught how to speak the way humans do
The big white parrots known as sulphur crested cockatoo
By their loud squawkings of their presence they make one aware
And in parts of Australia these birds are not rare
The yellow crest on their head they can raise with ease
They live in large flocks and they squawk as they please
Their palish to white...

The Day It Is Pleasant And Warm And Fine

Posted Tuesday 1st June 2010 at 09:05 by Francis Duggan
The day it is pleasant and warm and fine
I sit on a park bench in the bright sunshine
In temperatures just over twenty degrees
The song of the magpie lark wafts in the breeze
His often repeated notes that sound like pee wee
Familiar to everyone and familiar to me
Were I born a poet I would love for to write
A poem others would like to read and even maybe recite
At a literary gathering or a poetry club
Or in the lounge room of a bar-room...

'Tis Cold In Aubane

Posted Tuesday 1st June 2010 at 09:03 by Francis Duggan
From the news by Mushera from here far away
'Tis cold in Aubane very cold there today
Low cloud over the high fields in fog cold and gray
And cattle in farm-sheds are bellowing for silage or hay
On the high and snow covered narrow road from Rylane to Millstreet Town
Few trucks, cars or buses do pass up and down
When the cold winds of January from Mushera do blow
And the high fields by the mountain are covered in snow
On the farmers of Aubane...

I Feel Grateful Another Day I've Lived To See

Posted Tuesday 1st June 2010 at 08:59 by Francis Duggan
Though my worth as a writer I often do doubt
There are no shortage of things for one to write about
The birds in the Parkland just across the way
Are chirping and whistling for to greet the new day.

Though eventually the Reaper will catch up with me
I feel grateful another day I've lived to see
The sun o'er the hill like a giant ball rise red
It looks very like a warm day is ahead.

The one I have loved since I was a young boy...

On Francis Ledwidge "The Poet Of The Blackbird'

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 01:37 by Francis Duggan
The poet and the soldier of Slane County Meath
With a tragic fate he was destined to meet
A World War 1 poet in battle he died
Far from his beloved Ireland and his home countryside
Francis Ledwidge breathed his last when in his life's prime
But his poetry does survive the great test of time
The beauty in his words with the reader remain
You read his poems once you will read them again
With the best poets of his era he does compare
He...
