Old Claraghatlea

Posted Monday 8th February 2010 at 20:15 by Francis Duggan
Old Claraghatlea I have not seen for some-while
And between here and there many a sea and land mile
'Tis there the life journey for me it began
For 'tis there I was born and grew into a man.

The changes are happening there I have been told
A new generation and some growing old
Since I left that old Townland 21 years ago
When ageless old Clara wore his hat of snow.

From Claraghatlea I'm one who lives far away
Perhaps I...

We Are Part Of The Family Of Nature

Posted Monday 8th February 2010 at 20:10 by Francis Duggan
We are part of the family of Nature we live for awhile and we die
And of the supposed life hereafter ask one more enlightened than I
Yet the ways of Nature are changing with some help from us one must say
The Polar ice caps slowly melting and sea levels rising each day.

With only a short hunting Season and the sea ice melting too fast
The mighty white bear of the Arctic may soon be a creature of the past
Not the only species facing extinction many...

In Late April Far Away

Posted Monday 8th February 2010 at 20:05 by Francis Duggan
Above the old fields swallows fly to and fro
And amongst the rank rushes the cock pheasant crow
And nesting songbirds are piping in the woods all the day
In Late April by the bracken hills far away,
Bluebells, primrose and snowdrops bloom on ditch of bohreen
And wildflowers in their billions in the fields to be seen
And in fancy she can hear the babbling rill
Flowing down to the river from the field by the hill
The migrant does not find it...

The Hopkins River

Posted Monday 8th February 2010 at 20:01 by Francis Duggan
It is a vast body of water a wonder of Nature to see
The river that is known as the Hopkins through Warrnambool crawls to the sea
From a very humble beginning into a vast waterway it does grow
As near to the shores of the Pacific at a slow snail's pace it slowly does flow
Thousands of centuries before Cook and his sailors arrived on this southern shore
Going by what the scientists do tell us fifty thousand years or more
The first Australians had their own...

The Brave Willy Wagtail

Posted Sunday 7th February 2010 at 20:31 by Francis Duggan
Late April in the Southern Fall does seem far from the Spring
But in the sunlit Townpark willy wagtail does sing
Australia's black and white fantail brave and cheeky for his size
To see him challenge birds as big as magpies is never a surprise
His unmistakeable song is one I often do hear
The brave willy wagtail sings all through the year
And on tree in the Parkland in the dim moonlight
I've often heard him singing in the stillness of the night...
