Since I Last Looked On Old Clara

Posted Saturday 31st July 2010 at 01:33 by Francis Duggan
The gray clouds of December pregnant with Winter rain
And brown storm water gurgling in the flooded roadside drain
And the old Boggeragh peaks wearing their hats of snow
And the stream to the big river bank high did flow.

It has been twenty three years going on twenty four
Since I last looked on old Clara above Claramore
In Claraghatlea where mine was once a known face
To many I'd be a stranger now in my homeplace.

A stranger...

Goddess Nature Or Mother Earth

Posted Saturday 31st July 2010 at 01:28 by Francis Duggan
The Goddess of Planet Earth from the far north to the far southern shore
What can be said of her that has not been said before
Her great power and beauty none ought to deny
Mother Earth or Goddess Nature are names she is known by
Her marvellous creations are for all to see
And her beauty is everywhere all around me
The one who can create a beautiful flower
Remains unchallenged as the World's number one Super Power
In her angry mood the ground...

Australian Magpies

Posted Saturday 31st July 2010 at 01:24 by Francis Duggan
Their flute like notes unmistakeable, melodious and clear
The Australian magpies sing all through the year
In their breeding season the males even sing at night
How lovely to hear them in the calm moonlight
In the quiet countryside or the park of the town
They warble in unison after sundown
Their flute like notes one could never mistake
They sing in the daytime and before daybreak
Still about them they do not have a gentle way
On mice...

Though I Hail From The Place

Posted Saturday 31st July 2010 at 01:20 by Francis Duggan
Though I hail from the place of the silver back crow
Of birds and their ways little I can claim to know
Though learning of Nature I still do enjoy
I have always loved her since I was a boy
And living in Claraghatlea by Millstreet Town
Where I often heard dipper with cloak of dark brown
And breast as white as the new fallen snow
Sing in the stream that to the river does flow
When the old fields are wearing their wildflowers of the Spring...

On The Passing Of Rupert

Posted Saturday 24th July 2010 at 01:21 by Francis Duggan
With Genevieve his friend and mentor he travelled far and wide
Through many towns and villages of South east Australia's countryside
And Rupert did love travelling in the back seat of the car
No journey for him it did seem could ever be too far.

In Melbourne and Central Victoria many homes they did share
The special bond between people and their dogs is something that's not rare
And to Genevieve Rupert was a loyal dog he loved her till his end...
