On Where Clara

Posted Sunday 18th April 2010 at 22:21 by Francis Duggan
On where Clara with the bracken face is ever looking down
I was born and raised in Claraghatlea a mile from Millstreet Town
In those old fields I penned my first verses
and daydreamed of renown
In the coolness of October when the leaves were turning brown
Penning rhyme as most will tell you is a hungry belly game
And I've never known of success and I've never known of fame
And though for myself as a rhymer I have never made a name
I keep on...

An Old And A Brown Country

Posted Sunday 18th April 2010 at 22:17 by Francis Duggan
An old and a brown Country in need of every bush and tree
With thistles in abundance and dry and bare as bare can be
Before the arrival of the first people this Land was very old
It's true history on paper it never will be told
Some call it a new Country those who do not understand
That it was even ancient before dinosaurs walked on land
We are like Nature's Seasons to life we come to and from go
And Nature lives forever that much of her we do know...

It Is A Brown Old Countryside

Posted Sunday 18th April 2010 at 22:11 by Francis Duggan
It is a brown old countryside the countryside out there
As far as the human eyes can see the paddocks brown everywhere
The few stunted growing old green gum trees a contrast midst the brown
Some 40 k's or even more to the nearest country town.

In the bare sun bronzed old countryside few animals to be seen
And by the highway searching for seeds red rumped parrots mostly light green
One of the few species of birds to be seen in a landscape dry and...

In The Drought Ravaged Landscape

Posted Sunday 18th April 2010 at 22:05 by Francis Duggan
A landscape where even gums and wattles are rare
The brown and wide paddocks for lack of rain looking bare
The waterless creek bed and bone dry roadside drain
And the parched countryside is in need of rain
Where bush fires have been through survivors count the cost
And they mourn for lives of family and friends in the flames of death lost
Many grieve for burnt homes and dead animals though homes can be re-built
And many suffer from what's known as...

That Much About

Posted Saturday 17th April 2010 at 22:40 by Francis Duggan
A tiny dark seed to a tall tree can grow
That much about Nature I can claim to know
Her secrets from us she keeps hidden away
Though from her we do learn something new every day.

The beauty of Nature for all to enjoy
And her I have loved since I was a young boy
And for as long as the breath of life in me remain
The love that I feel for her I will retain.

The longest human life in time not a lengthy span
And in ten years...
