A Nice Winter Day

Poem By Francis Duggan

Above the coastal paddocks on this sunny August day
A freshening breeze blowing up from Gormans Bay
For the Moyne Shire a pleasant Winter day of a weather temperature high of sixteen
And the countryside looking quite healthy and green
The songs of the blackbirds and magpies so pleasant to hear
On this beautiful day for the time of year
Twenty four nights and days till the first of the calendar Spring
And the nesting birds already whistle and sing
Under the blue sunny sky with just a few clouds of gray
The contented cattle chewing their cuds do lay
The countryside so green after recent rain
With such pleasant weather how can one complain
In August three weeks and three days from the calendar Spring
The nest building songbirds do whistle and sing.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
