Memories Of The Male Snipe

Posted Thursday 18th March 2010 at 21:31 by Francis Duggan
Above his breeding territory in the night sky
with his wings and tail he sends out a warning as to and fro he fly
To the males of his own kind those living nearby
The sound that he creates seems like a goat like cry.

Often from the bogland road on evenings in May
In my northern Homeland from here far away
I heard the male snipe in his territorial display
He drummed out his warning 'til the dawning of day.

The snipe of the bogland...

The Miracles Of Nature

Posted Thursday 18th March 2010 at 21:29 by Francis Duggan
A tiny dark seed to a great tree can grow
A miracle of Nature that much we do know
And Nature's miracles are many and her secrets not few
In telling you that I'm not saying anything that's new.

The miracles of Nature we witness every day
We see life existing where there is decay
Amongst the dead leaves that are strewn on the ground
Insects and slugs that live on decay are crawling around.

The Mother of Nature lives by her own...

Memories Of Wonthaggi

Posted Thursday 18th March 2010 at 21:24 by Francis Duggan
Since the last time I see old Wonthaggi many weeks and months have gone by
Above the scrub by Powlett River the lark sang in the sunny sky
The country side by the old coal Town I do see when I visualize
And on the bracken clad hill of Baxter's land I see the roos box at sunrise
A historical Town old Wonthaggi it's fame it is known far and wide
Where miners won their strike for higher wages and better working conditions in the mine where some of their comrades died...

Where The Hopkins River Flow

Posted Thursday 18th March 2010 at 21:19 by Francis Duggan
I hear the monotonous cawings of the glossy pale eyed crow
And the sweet flute of the magpie where the Hopkins River flow
Through green and fertile coastal lands near Warrnambool to the sea
I love this grand old Country 'tis home from home for me
This very ancient Country that inspire story, song and rhyme
It was a very old Land even in the Dreaming Time
Where the Indigenous people had their Corroborees
In warm Summer evenings in the shadow of the...

Belgrave Town

Posted Wednesday 17th March 2010 at 20:13 by Francis Duggan
On the Burwood Highway cars and trucks buzz up and down
Through Upwey and Tecoma and the main street of Belgrave Town
Those cars and trucks that seem to multiply
On the mountain roads of Melbourne's outer eastern suburbs as the years go by
To Belgrave Town the Seasons come and go
And few there nowadays I can claim to know
On the hills above the Town the mountain ash stand tall
Compared to them most other trees seem small
In the high woods from...
