In The Land Of The Saltpans

Posted Saturday 14th August 2010 at 05:15 by Francis Duggan
In the land of the saltpans that look white as snow
Of very few creatures where saltbush does grow
The bones of the Dreamtime people in their hidden graves lay
In the deserted Coorong from here far away
Where few people live in a land old as time
That has inspired writers to story and rhyme
But the true history of the Coorong's first people will never be told
Or of where they lived, raised their children, hunted, danced and grew old
In my flights...

By The Road To Macroom

Posted Saturday 14th August 2010 at 05:12 by Francis Duggan
From mid to late Summer the dandelions bloom
By dykes and by ditches by the road to Macroom
The old fields are looking so lush and so green
And Nature's beauty is everywhere for to be seen
In fancy from the rank rushes I watch the lark rise
How sweetly he carols as upwards he flies
Till in the gray clouds from view he disappear
Yet the tinkling notes of the bird I do hear
In small fields of Cloghoula by ditch and hedgerow
The Finnow...

In Birdsland Today

Posted Saturday 14th August 2010 at 05:08 by Francis Duggan
The magpies are fluting in Birdsland today
And galahs in their cloaks of light pink and gray
Call on the high branches of the gray gum trees
That gently does sway in the freshening breeze
Blowing down from South Belgrave on the higher ground
Through Birdsland the Nature Reserve with steep paddocks all around
The waterbirds dabbling and diving in the shallows of the lake
The loud quacks of the black duck the softer tones of the drake
Where swamphen,...

From The Fields Of My Younger Years

Posted Saturday 14th August 2010 at 05:05 by Francis Duggan
From the fields of my younger years I live far away
But in fancy I do visit them every day
And I see the hawthorns in their blooms of white to gray
And hear the nesting birds sing in the sunshine of May
The praises of Nature I feel happy to sing
And of the beauty I knew in a far away Spring
Were I born a poet of such I would write
For others to read and enjoy and recite
Though where mine was once quite a well known face
I may now be...

On Birdsong

Posted Wednesday 11th August 2010 at 01:41 by Francis Duggan
It is not out of love or the joy of the Spring
On bush or on tree or high on the wing
Or to serenade his partner the songbird does sing
With birds song it is a territorial thing
The lives of birds are complex as the word can be
But they only do sing to proclaim territory
To warn males of their own kind from their borders stay clear
'Tis not songs of love their neighbours from them do hear
At nesting time with a territory to defend
To...
