In The Flat Old Countryside

Posted Saturday 29th May 2010 at 01:35 by Francis Duggan
A brown to green old countryside out there
Quite similar one would not see anywhere
Cattle and sheep in fenced paddocks flat and wide
Where once the Dreamtime people did reside
In this countryside that could do with more trees
They lived and fished and hunted and had their corroborees
Till the paler foreigners that came from a distant shore
Did change their ways of life for evermore
But most things change and few things one could name

The Last Rose Of Autumn Has Gone To Decay

Posted Saturday 29th May 2010 at 01:31 by Francis Duggan
The last rose of Autumn has gone to decay
Her petals on the grass by her mother tree lay
The last rose on her tree she bloomed in the Fall showers
One might say of her a queen amongst flowers
So lovely and pink in the bloom of her prime
But the life of a flower is a short span of time
The late Autumn rose is the quickest to die
But if the rose is a mortal then so too am I,
Ground insects and slugs her petals now eat
To them the soft...

A Sign From Nature

Posted Saturday 29th May 2010 at 01:28 by Francis Duggan
When you hear the blackbird singing in the warmth of a Summer's day
It is a sign from Nature that rain is on the way
Since blackbirds are natural Spring songsters in Summer their songs tell of rain
From listening to Nature's wildborn creatures weather insights we do gain
Birds can be Nature's weather forecasters of such instances quite a few
But to that you may even say tell us something that is new
Of Nature's many wonders we do become aware
But...

The Silver Billed Magpies

Posted Saturday 29th May 2010 at 01:24 by Francis Duggan
I often hear them singing on a moonlit night
And in the gray dawn and the fading twilight
The silver billed magpies birds I often do hear
In fact they do sing every day of the year
Their familiar notes one can never get wrong
The black and white birds with the beautiful song
For their aggressive nature they are quite well known
But as songsters they are in a class of their own
It can be said of them in bravery they do not lack
At nesting...

On Long Billed Corellas At Twilight

Posted Wednesday 26th May 2010 at 01:26 by Francis Duggan
In the gathering twilight as the sun is going down
On the tall gum trees in the park of the town
The long billed corellas are squawking loudly birds bereft of song
To the cockatoo family they do belong
In their limited range in large numbers they abound
With their long hooked beaks they dig for bulbs and other food in the ground
Like most parrots they nest in a cavity high on a tree
And their pale eggs few have been privileged to see
Of humans...
