The Song Of The Bullfinch

Posted Tuesday 4th May 2010 at 00:25 by Francis Duggan
The song of the bullfinch I fancy I hear
He sings in the grove to my thoughts ever near
Not the finest songster of the northern Spring
But who can mistake him for the quiet song he does sing.

The male with beautiful pink breast and light blue feathers on his wings and back
And stocky to look at his rounded head black
And a short thick beak designed for cracking seed
A beautiful fellow to look at indeed.

Somewhat plainer but...

A Place Called Home

Posted Tuesday 4th May 2010 at 00:19 by Francis Duggan
It may be London, Paris or Rome
For all of us there is a place called home
It may be Beijiing, Rio or New York
For me 'tis a place called Millstreet County Cork.

When frost was on the blue December sloe
I left that place more than two decades ago
Finnow bank high in flood waters of brown
Flowed in the old fields west of Millstreet Town.

Old Claraghatlea where I first saw light of day
From my thoughts never ever far away...

The Pee Wee Song

Posted Tuesday 4th May 2010 at 00:15 by Francis Duggan
I hear them every morning in the Parkland at daybreak
The pee wee song of the pee wee one never could mistake
In late Winter they build their cup shaped mud nest on fork of branch of tree
The black and white birds known as magpie lark or mudlark or to many as pee wee
Their kind live all around Australia east, west and north and south
That they are fair dinkum Aussies there isn't any doubt
They live in country paddocks and in town parks by the sea

Arguably John Clare

Posted Tuesday 4th May 2010 at 00:11 by Francis Duggan
In the English language the greatest poet of Nature is arguably John Clare
Many of his bird and animal and insect poems are gems beyond compare
Yet he died in Northampton mental asylum where he had lived for many years
He penned such marvellous poetry though his life was full of tears.

His Nature poems of the nineteenth century are relevant to today
The Badger and The Landrail, The Fox and Clock a Clay
The Pettichap, The Cuckoo and The Thrush's Nest...

The Thunder Cracks In The Gray Sky

Posted Monday 3rd May 2010 at 00:54 by Francis Duggan
The thunder cracks in the gray sky and the rain it is bucketing down
Above the high and dry and bare paddocks by the river that flows by the town
On those paddocks that need heaps of rain it has been awhile since they were green
This countryside is looking dry 'tis as dry as it ever has been
His feathers soaked wet from the rain the magpie flutes on the blackwood tree
From it's drenched leaves the rain drips and drips by the river that flows to the sea
To...
