On Pied Currawong

Posted Sunday 22nd August 2010 at 01:57 by Francis Duggan
There are birds known as the pied currawong
You hear and see them once you never more get them wrong
With white tips on wings and tail and otherwise black as a crow
In South East Australia birds that everybody know
In Winter in huge flocks they congregate
And singing together a lot of sound they do create
On the tall trees that in the cool winds sway
They call out karra currawong all through the day
A bad reputation around them has grown...

There Is Far More To Millstreet

Posted Sunday 22nd August 2010 at 01:53 by Francis Duggan
There is far more to Millstreet and to Millstreet Town
Than show jumping or elite sportspeople who brought to the place renown
In Duhallow near Sliabh Luachra it is known far and wide
For it's hospitable people in a scenic countryside.

When people ask me what part of Ireland I come from to them I always say
From Claraghatlea near Millstreet Town far north and far away
In view of Clara Mountain overlooking Claramore
Though I've not seen the...

The Eastern Curlews Are Piping Today

Posted Sunday 22nd August 2010 at 01:47 by Francis Duggan
Above the mudflats of McLoughlins Beach from here far away
The eastern curlews are piping today
Their flute like notes so melodious and clear
The pleasant memory of such to my thoughts ever near
At McLoughlins Beach in South Gippsland in Spring
The music of the flute of the curlew is a beautiful thing
On cool blustery weather around twenty degrees
Their music is carrying in the coastal breeze
A memory to cherish and for to retain
And...

In The Damp Rushy Fields

Posted Sunday 22nd August 2010 at 01:42 by Francis Duggan
In the damp rushy fields near the Town of Millstreet
Where the Cails from Kippagh and the Finnow does meet
I grew to love Nature when I was a boy
And learning about her I still do enjoy
My thoughts often go to a far away Spring
When the nesting songbirds do whistle and sing
And hawthorns are in their white blooms of the May
Such beautiful scenes in the memory to stay
Of dark swallows chasing flying insects in the gray sky
And brown meadow...

We Are Part Of Nature

Posted Saturday 14th August 2010 at 05:19 by Francis Duggan
The bond to our Earth Mother in most of us is strong
As is in the blind earthworm or as is in the bird of song
But what I am about to say most would dismiss as wrong
That we are part of Nature and to her we do belong.

So many people believe in on their great God in the sky
In the land that's known as Heaven where winged angels fly
Above the ever flowering fields to greet the dawn of day
If this what they believe in with me that is okay....
