The Day It Is Very Warm

Posted Wednesday 14th April 2010 at 22:38 by Francis Duggan
The day it is very warm with scarce a puff of breeze
And the cattle from the sun sheltering in the shade of the trees
And the warm air full of the buzzings of flies and of bees
In a forecast high of over forty degrees.

The brown and bare paddocks are thirsting for rain
And the water dams low and a waterless roadside drain
This countryside with lots of rain now could do
A day of precipitation having said that even two.

On A Warm Day In The Summer

Posted Wednesday 14th April 2010 at 22:35 by Francis Duggan
On a warm day in the Summer on the flowering bushes and trees
The chirpings of the nectar eating birds and the buzzings of the nectar gathering bees
The sun shining in the clear blue sky with a welcome coolness in the afternoon breeze
A forecast low of 27 and a high of 35 degrees.

A bit warm to be out in weather in the full sun away from the shade
Without a hat exposed to u v rays a sun tan for cancer does seem a bad trade
But a nice day to go to...

We Do Belong To The Land

Posted Wednesday 14th April 2010 at 22:31 by Francis Duggan
When people talk of land ownership they talk of a deed of title that to it that has their name
But the land is not owned by anybody the land was here before people to it came
Millions of years before the birth of the first human the land we live on it was here
The land will be around forever and I may not be living next year
Land has caused bloodshed,sorrow and suffering and millions fighting for it have died
But that the land can exist without us is a fact that...

Love Of Place

Posted Wednesday 14th April 2010 at 22:28 by Francis Duggan
Love of Country does seem an over-rated thing
Since the praises of love of place most like to sing
Yes love of place does have a place in the heart
That from other loves seem to place it apart
Most migrants through their lives a strong sense of place do retain
And in their flights of fancy they return again
To the town where they first looked on the lamp of day
In distance from where they live now far away
For one reason or other only they...

My Wonder Of Nature Only Seems To Grow

Posted Tuesday 13th April 2010 at 22:47 by Francis Duggan
Though little about her I can claim to know
My wonder of Nature only seems to grow
And I have been in love with her since way back in time
Since I was quite young long before my life's prime
And that's going back more than half of a century ago
When I lived in the place where the old Finnow flow
To join the Blackwater through fields and by many a ditch and hedgerow
By the homes of the badger, the pheasant and crow
For as long as my body the...
