His Breeding Ground

Posted Sunday 14th March 2010 at 20:35 by Francis Duggan
His breeding ground the bird defends in song
But those who say his song is born of joy have got it all wrong
Or 'tis not out of love he feels compelled to sing
No song to him perhaps is just a territorial thing
Is he that different to human kind
In our sort too aggression you will find
Our borders too we do fight to defend
And to make a foe we often lose a friend
To birds and animals in some of our behaviour we relate
We even have to...

The Memories Of Boyhood Years

Posted Sunday 14th March 2010 at 20:32 by Francis Duggan
The memories of boyhood years my source of joy
Slashing thistles in my uncle's fields in Lisnaboy
In changeable weather in early July
So close to the grass the barn swallows did fly
A lesson from Nature that I do retain
When swallows fly close to the ground to expect rain
From the nearby meadows the sweet scent of hay
The joy of such memories with me today
My wonder at Nature's ways beginning to grow
But the more one learns of Nature...

On The Second Week Of September

Posted Sunday 14th March 2010 at 20:28 by Francis Duggan
Across the high green paddocks the freshening winds blow
In the sunshine of September near where the river waters crawl slow
Near the end of it's journey the deep salty sea
The river waters like us fulfil their life's destiny.

A pair of crows are building their stick nest high on a gum tree
And the mud nesting magpie lark known to some as pee wee
Are singing out pee wee their familiar song
Some voices of Nature one cannot get wrong.

On Dorothea McKellar's My Country

Posted Sunday 14th March 2010 at 20:25 by Francis Duggan
One of Australia's all time great poems she did write
A poem many Aussies feel proud to recite
A poem that has moved migrant Aussies to tears
My Country will live on for centuries of years.

As a poet one can say that her equals are few
Of the nostalgia of the migrant Dorothea McKellar knew
She penned My Country in England of homesickness feeling down
The poem that assured her of literary renown.

A poem that in Aussie migrants...

The Blackbird Is Singing

Posted Saturday 13th March 2010 at 21:12 by Francis Duggan
The blackbird is singing in the twilight gray
In a long gone Spring I heard his kin bird in a wood far away
Singing in the rain on a breezy Spring day
When the hawthorns were wearing their pale blooms of the May
It has been twenty one years time flies it does seem
Since I last heard the dipper singing in the stream
That flowed by the grove from the field by the hill
Where the glossy blackbird with the bright yellow bill
Was piping for to proclaim...
