A November Day In The South

Poem By Francis Duggan

We only can go back in time in memory
And the now is all that does matter would you not agree
The sun it is shining on this pleasant Spring day
And the nesting birds are singing in the park by the bay
November is such a green time of the southern year
The Spring all but over and Summer is near
Everywhere looking so green and the wildflowers are blooming after the recent rain
With such pleasant weather how can one complain
The song of the male blackbird so pleasant to hear
And the birds who do sing every day of the year
The Australian magpies with the warbling flute like song
The birds from once heard you never again do get wrong
The parkland has never been looking more green
And Nature at her finest is to be seen.

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
