Drought In The Amazon

Posted Monday 3rd May 2010 at 00:30 by Francis Duggan
I have heard on the radio news of today
Of a drought in the Amazon Forest from here far away
Such sad news the worst news one could wish to hear
Than terrorism to Humanity a far greater fear
The Amazon Rainforest is the World's Environmental Soul
And with that in strife Climate Change is out of control
As much of the World's carbon emissions are absorbed by healthy Rainforest trees
And without them the World Climate will grow warmer by many degrees...

The River From The High Country

Posted Monday 3rd May 2010 at 00:27 by Francis Duggan
Through dry and brown paddocks and many a bush town
The river from the high country babbles on down
In the darkness of night and the bright lamp of day
To the Pacific Ocean many miles away
In Summer when the sun's lamp is glowing in the sky
And most of the creeks that do feed it are dry
The river from the high country at it's most low
Still down the brown gravel it ripples on slow
In heavy drought breaking rains it does overflow
And...

Memories Of The Glasheen Rill

Posted Monday 3rd May 2010 at 00:24 by Francis Duggan
Time brings with it changes as some are known to say
I wonder do young boys catch eels in the Glasheen today
As I did with my school-friends a long time ago
Though of eels and their ways little I can claim to know
The boys I went to school with ageing men of today
And some from the Glasheen Rill many miles away
And some live in Millstreet they love the Homeplace
Where mine even nowadays might be a strange face
But life goes on back there by...

A Rainy Evening In March

Posted Monday 3rd May 2010 at 00:20 by Francis Duggan
After months of drought conditions so welcome is the rain
And nice to see the brown stormwater running in the open drain
It may not be the drought breaking heavy rains that we so badly need
But every drop is welcome very welcome indeed
Up north there has been huge floods and months of drought down here
In Climate Change the weather patterns to say the least severe
Either too much rain or no rain in the Land of flood, drought and fire
The weather patterns...

By The Cliffs Of The Sea

Posted Sunday 2nd May 2010 at 01:10 by Francis Duggan
The magpie he pipes on the black wattle tree
In the gray of twilight by the cliffs of the sea
The temperatures nice around 18 degrees
And the evening is calm with only a slight breeze
The sky seems to meet the World where the ocean is deep
And the huge mass of saltwater appears to be asleep
The crow on the fence post he caws loud and long
His is a familiar though not pleasant song
In the twilight of an evening in the early Fall
Above...
