In The Town By The Sea

Poem By Francis Duggan

The good memories till death will be living in me
Of the beautiful town overlooking the sea
The sound of the waves splashing on the rocks of the shore
A sound that's destined to live forever more
Where mine years ago did become a known face
In the town by the sea such a beautiful place
The coastal people for their warmth are well known
They certainly do have a charm of their own
As hospitable as one could wish to meet anywhere
In the town by the sea one does feel at home there
Flying above the tide line piping melodious and clear
The pied oyster-catchers i fancy i hear
And the silver gulls mew above the cliffs as they fly
As the sun it does set in the west of the sky.

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

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
